Abstract
In this paper the factors controlling the performance of electron beam-pumped, broadband diatomic and tri-atomic rare gas-halide excimer lasers are discussed. Particular attention is directed toward the blue/green in the XeF(C>A) laser centered at 485 nm, for which significantly improved performance has been obtained by selective tailoring of mixture kinetic processes. Maximum XeF(C>A) laser output energies in excess of 1.5 J/liter have been achieved, corresponding to an intrinsic efficiency of approximately 1%.
