Abstract : The patent describes a direct current transverse discharge, gaseous, slotted hollow cathode laser. It has an electrically indirectly heated oxidized tungsten, or molybdenum cathode. Heating to thermionic emission in the presence of cesium vapor adsorbes cesium atoms and over a defined temperature range thermionic emission occurs in inverse proportion to the temperature of the cathode stabilizing the emission.
