Abstract
A new method is described for reducing the length of the TEA-CO2 laser pulse tail. Experimental results are presented which demonstrate a reduction of the total pulse length, measured at a level of 0.5% of the peak intensity, from 2.5 mu s to 0.32 mu s. This is achieved with no concomitant losses in the peak intensity.
