Abstract
Within the Eureka EU213 excimer laser program, the Laser Technology Centre at Culham is developing high average power excimer lasers operating at pulse repetition frequencies (PRFs) of greater than 1 kHz. This paper reviews recent high PRF results obtained on the testbed CHIRP I laser in the areas of preionization and pulse power. PRF limiting mechanisms observed in preliminary multikilohertz laser operation are described.
