Abstract : An investigation of an induced gas discharge in N2-CO2 mixtures under atmospheric pressure is reported. A beam of electrons with an energy of about 100 kev and a current of about 50 microampere is used as an external ionizer. A stable burning of such a discharge under stationary conditions was achieved in this experiment. Subsequent analysis indicates possible use in the future of such discharges for a combined pumping of CO2 lasers.
