I am curious to know if an intense pulse at 337 nm from a nitrogen laser
could be used to photoionize the N2:He:CO2 mix in a TEA or axial discharge
CO2 laser sufficient to allow an electrical discharge to fire the CO2 laser.
The nitrogen laser is just an igniter, not a pump. What is the penetration
length of 337 nm light in N2 at atmospheric pressure?
