Paper Abstract

Development of pulsed excitation techniques for high-pressure dielectric barrier discharges (DBD) has led to a short-pulsed, high-peak-power, spatially uniform source of UV7VUV radiation -- a preferred type of output for materials processing and many other applications. Results of such a Xe2* DBD source at 172 nm for removing mountants from optical surfaces and for removing hydrocarbon contamination from optical and polymer surfaces are presented.
