Abstract
High power excimer lasers are required for industrial applications such as micromachining of printed circuit boards. Reliability and durability are as important as high output power. At the design of a new laser, the lifetime of gas and components must also be taken into consideration like output power and beam profile. Another point is the size of the laser. It should be transportable without being disassembled. The output power of excimer lasers can be written as pulse energy times repetition rate. There are various ways to reach 500 W output power. Opposite to the LPX805, which delivers a pulse energy of 3 J at a large beam cross section, we aspire to a pulse energy of approximately 800 - 1000 mJ with the system presented here. The maximum repetition rate of the laser is in the region of 500 - 600 Hz.
