Paper Abstract

There were carried out numerical investigations of the possibility of applying the self-injection technique for generation of short pulses jil rare-gas halide excimer lasers. We investigated a case in which the electrooptical switch is placed in a resonator and is contrulled by two half-wave voltage gates and active medium has the parameters typical for the KrF laser. The model regarded vibrational relaxation and collisional mixing of the B states of excimer molekule. The influence of parameters characterizing the course of voltage applied to the Q-switch upon energy power temporal shape and contrast of generated pulses was analysed. It was stated that there is a possibility of a controlled generation of pulses of time duration from a few hundreds of picoseconds to a few nanoseconds and power of on order higher than in case of free oscillation.
