A corona preionized pulser-sustainer, transverse, electric, atmospheric CO2 laser has been developed. This small-aperture laser can produce 180 mJ optical pulses of 5 µs duration from a discharge volume of 15.6 cm2 with an efficiency of 12.4%. The laser was driven by a simple inexpensive solid-state exciter.
