Paper Abstract

A theoretical analysis is made to describe the influence of an active disturbing medium on the far-field diffraction pattern of an excimer laser beam. Results are in good agreement with experiences. The gas density perturbations induce amplitude and phase aberrations which are responsible for the degradation of the beam characteristics in the far-field.
