Abstract

Plasma tubes which are topologically torroidal in shape are provided with a series of conductive layers, for example, layers of copper, separated by insulation. The copper layers are connected together to form a coaxial series inductive winding which is used to excite the gas in the plasma tube. Due to the geometry of the plasma tube and the coaxial nature of the windings, it is difficult to connect the windings in series. The drawing shows an efficient connection for the case where the plasma is employed in a gas laser. In such instance, tube 10 has two open ends on a straight section and the connections are made at one of the ends. The conductive layers are shown in cross-section. Connection 12 is made to inner layer 14. The latter extends about the straight section of tube 10 and continues around the curved portion.

Connection for Coaxial Conductive Multilayer Windings

Plasma tubes which are topologically torroidal in shape are provided with a series of conductive layers, for example, layers of copper, separated by insulation. The copper layers are connected together to form a coaxial series inductive winding which is used to excite the gas in the plasma tube. Due to the geometry of the plasma tube and the coaxial nature of the windings, it is difficult to connect the windings in series. The drawing shows an efficient connection for the case where the plasma is employed in a gas laser. In such instance, tube 10 has two open ends on a straight section and the connections are made at one of the ends. The conductive layers are shown in cross-section. Connection 12 is made to inner layer 14.

The latter extends about the straight section of tube 10 and continues around the curved portion. Near the open end, inner layer 14 is connected through the insulation, not shown, to the next layer
16. The latter in turn, extends around tube 10 and the inner layer 14 and back to the open end where it is connected through the insulation to the next layer 18. In like manner, a desired number of coaxial connective layers can be formed around tube 10 and connected in series circuit to operate as an inductive winding. The outermost layer is connected to connection 20.
