Paper Abstract

A complex model of XeCl selfsustained discharge laser and two simple models based on different approximations are used to study a small and a large volume device. It is found that both simple and complex models reproduce satisfactorily the experimental results obtained for the small volume device, while they give too long a laser pulse when applied to the larger one. A one-dimensional modeling is performed to study the possibility of a discharge contraction, and as an open problem the recombination kinetics of positive ions is discussed.
