Paper Abstract

An x-ray preionized excimer laser is described. For this laser, the special sealed metal- ceramic x-ray preionizer with cold cathode was constructed. The cathode was made from carbon felt and had 4 X 80 cm2 area. The discharge volume was 70 X 4 X 3 cm3 and on XeCl one provided the energy up to 2J in a pulse. In the same discharge chamber, the different types of preionizers (spark discharges, UV laser radiation) were investigated. It was shown that the output energy depends on the electron density uniformity rather than the electron concentration.
