    The feasibility of using XeF(C-A) excimer media as an amplifier for subpicosecond short pulse lasers is theoretically investigated. Numerical caculations by using a coherent interaction model show that as a result of both a large saturation energy density and bleaching of absorbers output energy densities of >100 mJ/cm2 are easily obtained. Influence of narrow band absorption of excited xenon metastable atoms on the amplifier gain and pulse waveform is also predicted.
