The area scaling in a nitrogen (N2: 337.1 nm) laser excited by the similar longitudinal discharges in single-and multichannel laser structures has been experimentally studied. The results demonstrate the capability of the area scaling method for increasing the average power and pulse-repetition frequency (PRF) of the laser. The variation of the laser output with the channel area and the effects of similar discharges are analyzed.
