Results of experimental investigations into the possibility of a pulsed inductive cylindrical discharge as a new method of pumping gas lasers operating at different transitions of atoms and molecules with different mechanisms of formation of inversion population are presented. The excitation systems of a pulsed inductive cylindrical discharge (pulsed inductively coupled plasma) in the gases are developed and experimentally investigated. For the first time five pulsed inductive lasers on the different transitions of atoms and molecules are created. Characteristic feature of the emission of pulsed inductive lasers is ring-shaped laser beam with low divergence and pulse-to-pulse instability is within 1%.
