Up till now the best performance of XeCl-lasers has been obtained by constructing systems with a low circuit inductance consisting of a waterline in series with a multi-spark gap. This multi-spark gap is required for obtaining a high voltage and therefore a high current rising speed. A serious disadvantage of a multi-spark gap however is, that it dissipates energy and contributes significantly to the total selfinductance of the system. We will discuss a construction, based on the corona-preionization technique, which functions as a system with multi-spark gap however without adding to the system self-inductance.
