Abstract

An optically pumped XeF(C–A) laser with 0.1– 1 Hz pulse-repetition mode is demonstrated. The maximum output energy is up to 18.7 J , which corresponds to the conversion efficiency of the stored electrical energy to laser output energy of 0.25%. The laser active medium is optically excited by vacuum-ultraviolet radiation of two single-channel surface discharges initiated along opposite walls of the laser cell. The laser resonator output coupling is 10%, and the initial Xe F 2 concentration in the active gas mixture is 1 × 10 17 cm 3 . The duration of the observed laser pulses is 0.8 to 1.2 μ s , and the spectral band is 470 500 nm .
