This thesis presents the results of a study of the mechanisms responsible for limiting the laser pulse duration obtainable in xenon chloride lasers which are excited by UV-preionized, self-sustained gas discharges.
The xenon chloride laser system, the principal emission band of which is centred around 308 nm, belongs to the class of high pressure gas lasers known as 'rare-gas halides'(RGH). RGH lasers are now well known for their high peak power output at a number of wavelengths fro...Expand abstract
