Abstract : The relationship between the process of lasering, the electron gas, and the excited state populations of the active medium are studied for the noble gas lasers. Microwave signals are employed to perturb the electron gas, and resultant alteration of laser output is investigated. The effects of lasering upon the microwave propagation constant, noise radiation temperature, discharge current and spectral emission are investigated experimentally in He-Ne gas lasers, and radiative cascade patterns in noble gases are described by an idealized theoretical model.
