Abstract
A novel discharge circuit for the pulsed excitation of a double-discharge grid-cathode TEA-CO2 amplifier is described. A distinctive feature of this circuit is the use of an underdamped preionizing discharge, together with a slow rate of electrical energy injection in the amplifying medium. Significant improvements in the stability and uniformity of the discharge is obtained by increasing the pumping period to the 2-6 s range.
