Abstract : An external inductance was placed in the circuit of a resistive transverse-excitation atmospheric discharge to observe its effect on the small-signal gain of a CO2-He-N2 gas mix. The results of the measurements indicate that by lowering the inductance of the circuit, less helium is required in the gas in order to obtain a uniform discharge; consequently, more CO2 and N2 may be used with higher gains resulting.
