Paper Abstract

Experimental results of long-pulse generation in X-ray preionized XeCl lasers with a 9 x 7 cm2 and 5.4 x 3 cm2 apertures are described. Lasers operate at Ne-Xe-HCl mixture with pressure up to 4 atm. Paper-oil pulse forming lines and rail-gap switch for discharge pump was used. An 2 - 10 J output with optical pulse duration of 250 - 300 ns (FWHM) have been extracted. Problems and peculiarities of long laser pulse formation are discussed.
