Parametric measurements have been performed on a CO2TEA laser with a discharge volume of 6.5 × 6.5 × 45 cm3. The effect of a low ionization seed gas, tri-n-propylamine, upon amplification, power output and voltage-current characteristics has been measured. A small-signal gain of 4.8%/cm has been measured in a 1:1:3 mixture and a power output of 60J/ℓ in a 3:11:21 mixture.
