Paper Abstract

Preliminary studies of an high average power, high energy per pulse, X-ray preionized XeCl laser are presented. A parametric study is given (efficiency and energy per pulse as a function of pressure, charging voltage, capacitance and X-ray dose). We obtained 4 Joules per pulse and the maximum efficiency is 2.5% with 1.7 J. With a circulation loop, 80 Watts has been reached.
