Abstract

Time-dependent calculations of multiplexed short-pulse amplification are presented which show that cascaded short pulses in KrF lasers, with an appropriate time interval between the pulses, can extract energy with only a small cost in extraction efficiency as compared to a single long pulse. This dynamic characteristic of KrF* permits the design of a novel, simpler angular multiplexing system. Calculations include nonsaturable and saturable absorption, amplified spontaneous emission effects, and an end mirror for double-pass amplification. The dependence of the extraction efficiency and the energy gain on the time interval and pulse shape are calculated.
