Abstract

A cw x-ray generator as a preionizer for a pulsed-discharge uv N//2/SF//6 laser. It was found experimentally that cw x radiation is effective for preionization of a N//2 laser discharge. The N//2 laser energy increased linearly with increasing initial electron number density generated by a cw x-ray preionizer when the electron number density was below 6 multiplied by 10**7 cm** minus **3 and the input energy loading was kept at 35 J/l. In the case of x-ray illumination, the N//2 laser energy increased by a factor of 12 over that of pure N//2 gas when SF//6 was added.
