Paper Abstract

An electric-discharge-pumped XeCl laser using phototriggering by x rays is described. A consistent input of the stored energy into the pumping discharge plasma has been realized. An output pulsed energy of about 10 J has been achieved in a 4-l active volume with an efficiency of about 2%. High spatial uniformity of the laser radiation and a stable space discharge were observed. A uniformity analysis of the discharge pumping has been made for the XeCl laser.
