Paper Abstract

Current research in excimer laser technology at Los Alamos progresses in two major areas: 1) In the Bright Source program, the development of ultra-high brightness (sub-picosecond) laser systems, based on discharge-pumped excimer laser amplifiers, continues. Recently we have completed rigorous measurements of the saturation parameter for ultra-short pulses. 2) In the laser fusion program, implementation of the large KrF laser fusion amplifiers have been accompanied by numerous studies of the laser physics and kinetics of large e-beam pumped devices.
