Abstract

We report on the operating parameters and laser output pulse characteristics of an extremely compact discharge-pumped 46.9-nm laser of a size comparable with that of many widely utilized visible and ultraviolet gas lasers. This capillary-discharge laser generated subnanosecond laser pulses with energies of as much as 25microJ by single-pass amplification in an 18.6-cm-long argon-plasma column. Measurements of the laser output energy, pulse width, far-field beam profile, and beam divergence are reported.
