Abstract
INVESTIGATION OF A NEW TYPE OF RARE GAS HALIDE EXCIMER LASER IS PROPOSED. THE NEW DEVICE IS POTENTIALLY CAPABLE OF CONTINUOUS ULTRAVIOLET OUTPUT AND UTILIZES MICROWAVE DISCHARGE EXCITATION OF MULTIATMOSPHERIC GAS MIXTURES IN NARROW-BORE HOLLOW WAVEGUIDES. RECOMBINATION OF HALOGEN MOLECULES DISSOCIATED DURING THE DISCHARGE IS ACCELERATED BY RAPID DIFFUSION OF THE MOLECULAR FRAGMENTS TO THE WALL OF THE NARROW-BORE TUBE.
