Abstract
Discharge pumped rare gas halide lasers have been demonstrated to have high efficiency and to operate reliably but the single pulse energies attainable from these devices have been limited by the difficulties associated with scaling to larger volumes. In this paper we discuss the preliminary results obtained from a twelve liter active volume device. This laser system, which is capable of exciting up to 3-0 liters, uses x-rays to preionize the gas. The design and operation of the system to date is presented.
