Abstract
For new industrial applications, mini excimer lasers with a wavelength of 157 nm were developed. The main goal was to extend the component lifetime. The laser tube is designed in metal-ceramic technology. An erosion-free corona preionization is installed. The pulsed-power module contains a solid state switch with additional compression stages to generate the high current rise at the electrodes of the laser tube. All of the modules in the laser system are designed for long lifetime. At 157 nm the mini excimer laser reaches a maximum single-pulse energy of 2 mJ up to a repetition rate of 1000 Hz. An overview of the results of long-term testing of these stateÑofÑtheÑart mini excimer lasers at 157 nm will be given.
