On the transient wave form of the oscillation at 4416 Å in a He-Cd II hollow cathode laser excited by the square wave discharge, a sharp peak is found in the initial region where the peak value of the discharge current is high. The excitation mechanism for the peak is due to the direct collision between electrons and Cd atoms.
