Paper Abstract

This paper discusses the design and performance of a new excimer laser. The laser delivers output powers as high as 160 Watts on KrF with an efficiency of 4.5%, and has demonstrated gas lifetimes significantly better than any previously reported for high-power, commercial lasers. Details are given of an apparatus designed to determine the impurities which presently limit gas lifetime in excimer lasers.
