Paper Abstract

A long pulse molecular F2 laser ((lambda) equals 157 nm) with an optical pulse width of 160 ns and an output energy of 1.7 J (4.6 MW/cm2) pumped by an electron beam has been realized. The only restriction for the optical pulse width of the laser seems to be the duration of the excitation pulse. No signs of self terminating laser pulses due to bottle-necking in the lower laser level have been observed.
