3.In practical high‐power amplifiers most of the retropulse energy (several hundred joules) is absorbed within the laser gas itself by such processes as inverse bremsstrahlung (see the discussion and the reference cited in Ref. 2). Therefore, the remaining retropulse energy, whose suppression is of interest in this work, is on the order of only a few joules.
4.A slightly different definition of breakdown threshold was used in Refs. 1 and 2, so that there is a small discrepancy between the values that appear in the present Fig. 3 for the long‐pulse data and those that appear in the earlier papers.
