Laser oscillations on HgII transitions in a transverse HF discharge

  • N. Sabotinov
  • P. Telbizov


Laser oscillation in a mixture of helium and mercury on the HgII transitions (λ=615 and 794.5 nm) in a transverse high-frequency excitation is obtained. Two types of self-heated laser tubes are investigated. The optimal oscillation conditions are found. The peculiarities of the generated pulse and their dependence on the discharge conditions are discussed.
