Paper Abstract

The operation of a narrow-bandwidth Self Filtering Unstable Resonator (SFUR) of magnification I M I = 10 applied to a UV-preionized XeC1 laser has been demonstrated. An intracavity grating (2400 lines/mm)) at a grazing incidence angle (80 ) has been employed to get a narrow-bandwidth SFUR. A 4.5 mm diameter output beam of 100 pJ, 19 ns long and with a linewidth of 0. 13 A has been obtained. Measurements of the spectral and optical laser radiation characteristics are reported. The narrow-bandwidth SFUR operation has been compared with the operation of a plane-plane cavity employing the same grazing incidence grating and 1 mm diameter intracavity spatial apertures.
