Energy characteristics of a lead vapor laser are investigated in wide ranges of helium buffer gas pressure variations (from 35 to 150 torr). It is demonstrated that a 4fold increase in the buffer gas pressure results in a 25% decrease of the specific energy output. The conclusion is made about the possibility of developing a Pb laser with active element… CONTINUE READING
