Paper Abstract

Efficient, ultra-narrow spectral output from an electron-beam excited XeF(C+A) laser medium has been achieved by injection controlled tuning. Using a two-component buffer gas comprised of Ar and Kr, XeF(C+A) laser pulse energy and intrinsic efficiency values comparable to those of UV rare gas-halide lasers have been demonstrated. For a 482.5 nm injection wavelength that is well matched to the XeF(C+A) gain maximum, output energy density and intrinsic efficiency values of approximately 8 J/liter and 6% were achieved.
