Abstract : The focus of this Phillips Laboratory supported research program is the development of a compact, surface discharge device suitable for pumping a variety of atomic and molecular lasers. This effort met all of the goals set forth in the original proposal, and, in general, proved to be quite fruitful. Specifically, the following accomplishments were realized: a surface discharge device, laser pulse energies, lasing in blue-green and erosion of a glass ceramic surface was measured.
