This report describes a project 1 to determine changes that occur in the composition of the gas during operation of a discharge tube such as is used in helium-neon lasers, and 2 to develop suitable instrumentation for such investigations. The omegatron mass spectrometer system that was developed is described, and data obtained with it on a helium-neon laser are reported. The laser output power and intensities of some lines of the emission spectrum of the discharge are also reported as functions of time of continuous operation of this laser. Author
