ABSTRACT
A longitudinal discharge XeCl 308-nm excimer laser operated with automatic spark UV preionization is reported. Laser oscillation has been obtained using a four-segmented longitudinal discharge tube of 260 mm length and 4 mm inner diameter and employing a capacitor transfer circuit with commercially available doorknob ceramic capacitors. Spark UV preionization has been found to increase the laser output energy.
