Abstract
The `Mercury' KrF laser facility at Los Alamos, New Mexico, U.S.A. is being built with the benefit of lessons learned from the Aurora KrF laser. An increased understanding of KrF laser engineering, and the designed implementation of system flexibility, will permit Mercury to serve as a testbed for a variety of advanced KrF technology concepts.
