Title: A slab Xe laser excited by a non-self-sustained discharge

Abstract

Repetitively pulsed lasing with a high repetition rate of 10 - 20 kHz is obtained for the first time in the near-IR region from Xe atoms excited by a non-self-sustained dc discharge with preionisation by high-voltage pulses. For an active medium with dimensions 190 mmx20 mmx20 mm, the average output power was {approx}100 mW and the peak power was {approx}5 W. The relative intensity of lasing transitions can be controlled by varying the dc discharge input power and selecting the composition and pressure of a gas mixture. (lasers)
