Paper Abstract

Real-time analysis of XeCl gas mixtures are described using mass, infrared, and ultraviolet spectrometry while monitoring output power from the laser. In separate experiments, the effects of dominant gaseous impurities are measured individually. Combining these data into a model, power loss from the XeCl laser can be predicted.
