Paper Abstract

Experimental results of long-pulse generation in X-ray preionized XeCl lasers with the 9x7 cm2 and 5.4x3 cm2 apertures are described. The lasers operate in the Ne-Xe-HCl mixture with the pressure up to 4 atm. Paper-oil pulse forming lines and a rail-gap switch for the discharge pumping were used. A 3.5 and 10 J output with the optical pulse duration of 250-300 ns (FWHM) has been extracted.
