Paper Abstract

The fine-scale thermal self-action of the laser radiation in pulsed excimer lasers is shown. The increments of the convective instability are obtained. The range of transverse modulation periods is defined, for which the instability exhibits significant temporal growth. It is shown that this effect can increase the laser divergence.
