Paper Abstract

High power excimer lasers which can deliver average powers of 100 W or more have been commercially available since 1983 when Lambda Physik introduced its model EMG 203 MSC. This progress was the result of a new proprietary switching technique (Magnetic Switch Control or MSC) which allowed unprecedented control of the energy flow through the high voltage discharge circuitry. In conjunction with a carefully designed gas flow and the judicious choice of components, this technique has meanwhile enabled the design of a large variety of reliable excimer systems including injection locked systems, lasers which deliver 120 W average power and lasers which can operate at up to 1000 Hz pulse repetition rate.
