Abstract
The novel operational regime of high-efficiency KrF lasers is presented. The excitation sources are intense electron beams and intense proton beams. Theoretical evaluation of electron-beam-excited KrF laser using one atmospheric-pressure, argon-free mixtures showed that by using high-excitation-rate and shorter-excitation-pulsewidth pumping, higher intrinsic laser efficiency than conventional argon-rich, high-pressure mixtures is attainable. The experimental results are also presented.
