We present the performance and durability of the newest model of the KrF excimer laser for microlithography KLES-G10K. The laser achieves 10 W of output power with 0.7 pm bandwidth at 1000 Hz with newly developed solid state pulsed power module and the high precise narrowing module. The durability of laser tube achieves 5 billion pulses with the new radio frequency preionization scheme, which reduces consumption of fluorine gas and maintenance of laser tube drastically.
