Paper Abstract

Several new applications of excimer lasers in industry and medicine have increased the requirements for control of excimer laser beam parameters. Some applications require precise control of spatial uniformity, pulse-to-pulse amplitude variations and temporal profiles. The spatial and temporal characteristics of excimer laser beams are affected by small changes in laser gas composition. The role of gas composition, as well as methods for controlling gas composition, are discussed in relation to critical beam parameters.
