The spatial distribution and the temporal development of the net gain have been measured in a ten liter active volume switchless discharge XeCl laser. The experimental results are compared with both zero-dimensional and two-dimensional kinetic code predictions. The comparison between the results of the kinetic codes and of some measurements relevant to the time-dependent discharge homogeneity allows a deeper insight into the influence of the streamer evolution on the discharge characteristics. © 1992 Springer-Verlag.
