Effect of the parameters of the discharge circuit on the mode of energy input into the gas during selfsustained discharge
Abstract
A model is presented for calculating the characteristics of the selfsustained discharge used for pumping electricdischarge lasers. The dependence of the mode of energy input on the parameters of the discharge circuit  voltage breakdown, overvoltage resulting in periodic voltage and current and gas pressure  is studied for the case of a CO2N2He laser. The calculations are performed for a discharge circuit with the following parameters: C = 4 x 10 to the 10 F and L = 1.5 x 10 to the 6 to 2 x 10 to the 5 H.
