In this paper we present, for the first time, theoretical grounds for the cataphoretic injection of metal vapor into the laser active media that was experimentally performed in the pulse-periodic He-Cd+ and He-Sr+-lasers. In a small-size He-Sr+-laser with a 3-mm-diameter and 26-cm-long discharge channel we have achieved a high, for the cataphoretic pump-through of metal vapor, mean power of lasing (510 mW) and record values of the specific mean power (277 mW/cm3) and gain coefficient (0.15 cm-1).
