Paper Abstract

The performance of a scaled, repetitively pulsed injection controlled XeF (C-A) laser system is reported. A 1 Hz electron beam pumped XeF (C-A) laser system produced 0.8 J per pulse with an intrinsic efficiency of 1.5 percent. Details of a compact halogen compatible flow loop is reported. Various unstable resonator geometries were evaluated. A minimum beam divergence of 150 microrad (full angle) corresponding to a three times diffraction-limited beam was determined from far field measurements.
