Lasing in N2 at 337 nm was achieved in a capacitively coupled discharge device having a cylindrical discharge volume with a length of 50 mm and a diameter of 3 mm. The cylindrical dielectric electrodes provide a nearly constant initial electric field throughout the discharge volume. Laser pulses with a width of 2.5 nsec (FWHM) and energy of 8 µJ were obtained.
