The switching characteristics of a thyratron-switched low pressure N 2 laser was studied. Under optimal conditions +or-100 ps short-term shot-to-shot jitter was achieved. Using an active feedback loop, +or-230 ps long-term stability of switching time was obtained. The results can also be used in designing excimer lasers.
