Abstract
An X-ray preionized discharge-pumped XeCl laser with two flat electrodes and a variable active volume of up to 1 1 is described. A charge-transfer circuit is employed with low-inductance water capacitors. The laser beam width is determined by X-ray collimators. Beam cross-sections up to 4x5 cm2 have been achieved. The laser pulse energy exceeds 3 J in a 40 ns pulse (FWHM). The dependence of output energy on gas pressure, charging voltage and beam width as well as the X-ray preionizer performance are presented.
