Paper Abstract

A large volume XeCl discharge pumped laser is studied by using several self-consistent models differing for assumptions regarding vibrational kinetics of HCl in the discharge mixture, volume stability, and microarc formation. Volume stability is studied by modeling the discharge plasma as a parallel resistor network, while a single microarc is introduced as a further network element with zero surface. It is stated that only models including microinstabilities as well as an accurate description of HCl vibrational kinetics could be used for large volume XeCl laser devices.
