A fast and convenient method for the extraction of basic constants from time resolved laser amplifier gain measurements is described. The method is based on the assumption of a two-level laser system having direct electron excitation of the levels involved. The experimentally measured pulsed discharge current waveforms and time resolved gain curves are analyzed by a digital computer and fitted to the above model
