Paper Abstract

Several novel diagnostic techniques have been used to analyze the laser kinetics occurring in electron-beam pumped excimer lasers. Described are a quadrature interferometer for measuring time-dependent electron densities, an overtone absorption technique for measuring the HC1 concentration, a broadband dye laser system for measuring the spectrally resolved gain in XeF, and a hook interferometer for measuring time-dependent excited state densities. These techniques can also be applied to other non-excimer lasers.
