Abstract The conditions under which an optical pulsed discharge stably generates periodic shock waves are determined theoretically and experimentally. It is shown that the mechanism of merging shock waves into a low-frequency quasi-stationary wave is operative in various gases (and vapours) in a wide range of laser spark energies. The application of such a wave for increasing the coupling factor in a laser engine is considered. (interaction of laser radiation with matter)
