This work reports on a study of a subsonic, turbulent, diffuse discharge with potential application to electric discharge convection lasers. Two methods of turbulence generation have been investigated; namely, a pulsed-jet ejector and a plate generator. Power inputs for various flow conditions are reported. Turbulence spectra for these flow conditions have been studied and an effort made to optimize the discharge stabilizing properties of the flow. Place generated turbulence proved superior for stabilizing the discharge.
