Abstract

The triggering ability of the laser-triggered lightning method is improved by using a KrF excimer laser with a high-repetition-rate of kHz order. The density of a weakly ionized plasma channel is enhanced by the accumulation effect of charged particles generated by the high-repetition-rate laser. The accumulation effect of charged particles and the enhanced triggered discharge were confirmed in the case of a laser repetition rate of 1 kHz.
