Abstract
A possibility of generation and compression of ultrashort pulses in excimer systems with saturable absorbers was investigated numerically. It is shown that using fast pulse periodic Q- switching millijoule pulses of duration in the 1 - 10 ps range are attainable from KrF oscillator with acridine dye as an absorber. Then the pulses can be compressed to subpicosecond range in an excimer amplifying system containing saturable absorbers. The proposed technique makes it possible to construct all-excimer pico- and subpicosecond high-power systems considerably less complex and less expensive than hybrid systems used at present.
