1 June 1989 Excimer Laser In The Kilowatt Range
Author Affiliations +
Excimer lasers emitting more than 200 W output power are not commercially available. A significant increase requires new technological efforts with respect to both the gas circulation and the discharge system. A due research project has yielded a laser which emits 0.5 kW at 308 nm when being UV preionized and operated at a repetition rate of 300 Hz. The laser, which is capable of operating at 500 Hz, can be equipped with an X-ray preionization module. After completing this project 1 kW output power will be available.
