Paper Abstract

Improvement in efficiency and specific output energy on an XeCl long pulse laser ((lambda) equals 308 nm) and the first achievement of long pulse (150 ns FWHM) laser emission from KrCl (B - > X) at (lambda) equals 222 nm are reported. The system, which includes x- ray preionization and double discharge (pulser/sustainer) excitation, allows potentially high laser efficiency from a small volume active medium with relatively low pressure Ne/Xe/HCl, Ne/Xe/BCl3, Ne/Kr/HCl and Ne/Kr/BCl3 working mixtures.
