Abstract

The output performance of the electron-beam-excited KrF laser operating at one atmosphere is theoretically analyzed. The laser, using an argon-free mixture, is found to operate with an intrinsic laser efficiency as high as that of high-pressure, argon-diluted mixtures. By using higher excitation rate and shorter excitation pulse width pumping, an intrinsic laser efficiency higher than that of conventional, argon-diluted, high-pressure mixtures is attainable. Moreover, the specific laser energy is comparable to that of two-atm, argon-rich laser gas mixtures under the same excitation condition.
