Abstract : A detailed comparison of four types of electrode structures for HF laser action was made. The HF was produced by transverse discharges through SF6/RH mixtures. The pulse energy, pulse duration, and spectroscopic output were measured as a function of the type of hydrogen donor, its partial pressure as well as the total pressure when He was added. The hydrogen donors used were H2, CH4, C2H8, and commercial gasoline. (Author)
