The performance of a planar waveguide laser, designed to produce short duration high-energy pulses, is described. Radiofrequency discharge stabilization techniques have been developed to permit efficient pulsed electrical power transfer and the achievement of a homogeneous laser gain media at very high input power densities. Hybrid confocal unstable/waveguide resonator designs have been used and been observed to produce high quality output beams.
