Abstract
The uniformity and stability of discharge process in a high pulse repetition frequency (PRF) long pulse XeCl laser are investigated for three different copper electrode roughnesses versus PRF (f less than or equal to 500 Hz; 10 shots). The discharge quality evolution is experimentally analyzed from discharge photographs obtained with a CCD video camera and pressure perturbation measurements achieved with a piezoelectric pressure probe placed very close to the discharge volume.
