Paper Abstract

We have analyzed the energy transfer process of a XeCl laser with a spiker-sustainer circuit using a zero-dimensional plasma model. The calculated relation between an electrical input energy and a laser output energy reveals approximately linear characteristics as an experimental result. Furthermore, main physical parameters determining a slope efficiency and threshold energy of these linear characteristics are clarified. These results show us practical solutions to realize 2-kW laser.
