Abstract

By developing a comprehensive computer code for e-beam excited XeCl lasers, the authors studied the effect of Ar and Ne diluents on the performance characteristics of XeCl lasers. According to the analysis of the XeCl* formation process, the XeCl* relaxation process, and the 308 nm absorption process, it is found that the XeCl* formation efficiency is determined mainly by the rate of the charge transfer process (from Ar** plus and Ne** plus diluent ions to Xe** plus ); in other words, by the difference between ionic potentials of Xe and the diluent gas used. The extraction efficiency is found to be decided mainly by the quenching rate of a three-body reaction for a short-pulse (55 ns) and a high-excitation-rate ( approximately equals 3 MW/cm**3) pumping, and by the absorption process for a long-pulse (500 ns) and a low-excitation-rate ( approximately equals 0. 2 MW/cm**3) pumping.
