Abstract
A compact (approximately equals m2 of table space), surface-discharge pumped laser head has been developed and applied to pumping the XeF(C-A) transition head has been developed and applied to pumping the XeF(C-A) transition that lases in the blue-green (approximately equals 485 nm) and the 1315 nm transition of atomic iodine. Having an active length of approximately equals 50 cm, this device requires no external high voltage or current switches, and presently dissipates >8 MW per cm of surface discharge. With 5% ouput coupling (unoptimized), pulse energies >50 mJ are obtained from the CA laser and 0,7 J from the iodine laser.
