Paper Abstract

The current performance of the high average power CHIRP II excimer laser is described. A power of 430 W at 1100 pps has been achieved on the XeCl excimer. Particular reference is made to the undesirable high pulse repetition frequency (PRF) effects observed in the testbed CHIRP I laser, and successfully avoided in CHIRP II.
