Paper Abstract

Operation of a scaled, injection-controlled XeF(C→)A) laser is described. The output energy is 0.6 J per pulse from an extracted volume of 0.48 ℓ, which corresponds to an extraction energy density of 125 J/ℓ. The energy deposition in the gas is 105 J/ℓ and the intrinsic efficiency is therefore 1.2%. Also included is the first report of a repetitively-pulsed (1 Hz) electron-beam pumped XeF(C→)A) laser.
