Two simple three-electrode spark gaps have been constructed to operate at high voltages up to 30 kV for use in a gas laser triggering system. The performance of each spark gap has been tested in a nitrogen laser system designed for this purpose, and the results are described in this report. The pressure-controlled spark gap has shown better results in terms of stability and lifetime, and it is highly reliable for high repetition rate switching.
