Time behaviour, threshold currents and power output of the most intensive induced transitions are investigated in pulsed argon- and xenon-ionlasers in the visible and ultraviolet region. In the 7 mm diameter tube transitions of higher ionized atoms are favoured compared to smaller diameter tubes. Pressure dependence of threshold currents and curent dependence of induced peak power are measured. By observing discharge current, spontaneous sidelight and laser output at the same time, information is obtained about possible excitation mechanisms for various transitions.
