Paper Abstract

The design of pulsed, high power excimer lasers incorporating unstable resonators is an area of major importance. The successful recording of UV holograms using an e-beam pumped XeF laser with unstable optics opens up the possibility of laser medium characterization by this procedure. This paper describes the optical configuration used in the recording of such holograms, and the measurement of the excimer laser's temporal coherence length by a holographic procedure. As a conclusion, several reasons for the proposed employment of UV holographic techniques in the design of high power excimer lasers are noted.
