Paper Abstract

An efficient electric-discharge XeCl laser is developed, which is pumped by a self-sustained discharge with a pre-pulse formed by a generator with an inductive energy storage and a semiconductor opening switch on a basis of SOS diodes. An output energy up to 800 mJ, total pulse length up to 450ns, and a total laser efficiency of 2.2% were attained using a spark UV preionization.
