Abstract
Excimer laser performance and operational efficiency can be enhanced by simultaneously applying several different approaches related to gas technology. Causes of laser beam power and profile decay, as well as degradation of laser cczriponents are detailed with special regard to laser gases. 4ethods for canbating these deleterious effects are then detailed. These include in—depth discussion of (1) initial gas purity, (2) gas handling between source and laser, (3) laser operating techniques, and (4) in—situ gas purification.
