The performance of a pulsed HF DF chain laser was investigated for the case of transverse initiation by a magnetically confined electron beam. Laser energy and beam quality are presented as functions of electron-gun, magnetic field, gas mixture, and optical resonator parameters results include 79 sliter HF laser output and electrical efficiency for conversion of total incident electron-beam energy to laser output energy of 45.
