A theoretical analysis of the circuits for a nitrogen laser driven by the Blumlein or capacitor charge transfer transmission line is given in detail. The electrical characteristics of the charge line for a special case of resonant charging are discussed and the effects of various parameters on voltage and current are investigated. By using MICRO-CAP software the transient behavior of the current and voltage in both the charge and discharge processes are studied and an optimum situation for a better laser performance is reported. The theoretical results obtained here could provide insights into the design and construction of high power gas lasers.
