Paper Abstract

Acoustic waves damping in a high repetition rate X-ray preionized excimer laser (XeCI ) is studied by means a test bed which consists in a subsonic loop and a laser head. The residual shock waves induced by input energy inhomogeneities can strongly affect the excitation quality and so the output laser energy. First results of the influence of a damping of these waves between two successive pulses are presented.
