Abstract
A SMALL HIGH-REPETITION-RATE ARF LASER UTILIZING MICROWAVE DISCHARGE EXCITATION WILL BE CONSTRUCTED FOR INTERFEROMETRY AND MASTER OSCILLATOR APPLICATIONS IN PHOTOLITHOGRAPHY. THE LASER WILL EXHIBIT A SPECTRAL WIDTH OF APPROXIMATELY 2 PICOMETERS AND IS EXPECTED TO OPERATE IN A LOW-ORDER TRANSVERSE MODE. IT SHOULD BE CAPABLE OF PULSE REPETITION RATES IN EXCESS OF ONE KILOHERTZ. THE PROPOSED LOW-ORDER TRANSVERSE MODE WOULD FIND APPLICATIONS IN INJECTION CONTROL OF LARGER ARF LASERS AND IN UV RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY. IN ADDITION, MANY APPLICATIONS EXIST IN MICROFABRICATION AND CHEMICAL ANALYSIS FOR A FAR ULTRAVIOLET SOURCE WHICH IS COMPACT, WITH REDUCED MAINTENANCE REQUIREMENTS.
