Paper Abstract

Within the Eureka EU213 excimer laser program, the Laser Technology Centre at Culham is developing high average power excimer lasers operating at pulse repetition frequencies (PRFs) of greater than 1 kHz. This paper reviews recent high PRF results obtained on the testbed CHIRP I laser in the areas of preionization and pulse power. PRF limiting mechanisms observed in preliminary multikilohertz laser operation are described.
