    Abstract

    Investigations of pulsed volume discharges at pressuresp~ 1 atm in nitrogen, C02:N2:He mixtures, and mixtures of noble gases and halogens are reviewed from the point of view of their use in lasers. The review examines self-sustaining discharges in which the initiating electrons are produced by illuminating the gap with an auxiliary spark, with an x-ray source, etc., and non-self-sustaining discharges with external gas ionization by fast electrons. Data on the contraction of volume discharges are presented. A special section is devoted to high-pressure discharges in C02 lasers.
