    This review paper presents the results obtained during the development and study of three high-power wide-aperture CO 2 lasers (λ = 10.6 μm) pumped with a discharge controlled by an electron beam. In developing these lasers, the method of formation of a space discharge at elevated pressures due to uniform ionization of the working mixture by an electron beam with an energy of some hundreds of kiloelectron-volts was used, which was proposed by researchers at the Instute of High-Current Electronics (IHCE).
