Abstract
A 1.2-m-long transversely excited atmospheric-pressure (TEA) CO2 laser utilizing shower discharges is described and its operating characteristics as a function of voltage examined up to 60 kV. Pulse energies in excess of 2 J, peak powers in excess of 20 MW, and efficiencies up to 15 percent have been achieved.
