An improved transverse-discharge gas laser tube is provided by positioning thermionic cathodes diametrically opposite each other across the plasma location with anodes positioned at 90 degrees to the cathodes, all contained within an electron repelling envelope. Laser configurations for both large and small circular cross-section plasmas are disclosed. A thermionic cathode plasma slab laser with a magnetic field that may be modulated to provide modulation of the laser beam is also disclosed.
