Paper Abstract

The beam properties of a typical excimer laser with plane parallel mirrors can be approximately described from the geometric optics point of view as a superposition of ray bundles with locally varying angular distributions. These distributions have been measured by recording the far-field intensity after a small aperture shifted transversally through the beam. The characteristic differences to the situation at e.g. an incoherent source and an ideal laser with a stable resonator and the consequences for imaging are discussed within this framework.
