Abstract : A nuclear reactor has already been employed as a source of ionization of gas in a considerable volume (approximately 750 cc) at a pressure close to atmospheric in experiments on immediate excitation of generation in a Hg + He3 mixture. This paper reports about experiments on combined excitation of a CO2 laser conducted on the same reactor (flow density of thermal neutrons in the central channel D approximately 5 x 10 to the 16th power neutrons/sq cm-sec, pulse length about 1 msec).
