Paper Abstract

A complete model of the long pulse XeCI excimer laser excited by a double discharge with fast magnetic switch has been established for an Ne/Xe/HCI active medium. This model simulate one of the potential working conditions of the IMFM high average power LUX test-bed. Model includes rate equations for species with most recent availiable rate constant values, circuit equations with time dependant ferite switch inductance and plasma impedance and rate equation for laser emission taking into account absorptions. The model allows to simulate very long laser pulses (150-200 ns) and numerical results are in good agreement (within 30 %) with experimental results obtained at IMFM.
