Paper Abstract

The requirements for obtaining extended discharge stability in an excimer laser system are summarized. We present a system working in auto prepulse that despite an intrinsic simplicity obtains a long pulse duration and a relatively high overall efficiency. The performances of the scheme have been tested on a small scale prototype. In these conditions computer modelling of the main electrical and optical features shows a good agreement with the experimental data, offering perspectives for scalability in energy and pulse duration.
