Title: Pulsed transverse electrodeless discharge excitation of a CO/sub 2/ laser

Abstract

A pulsed electric discharge between two dielectric sheets which is suitable for laser excitation is reported. CO/sub 2/ laser operation at pressures extending to 650 Torr in unpreionized He/N/sub 2//CO/sub 2/ mixtures is obtained in experiments demonstrating the utility of the technique. Limitations imposed by dielectric parameters are discussed.
