Abstract
We have developed a high repetition rate high average power pulsed laser system intended for industrial applications. The system has been designed for operation as an excimer and CO2 TEA laser and is capable of continuous operation at repetition rates of up to 2 kHz. A closed loop gas recirculation system, driven by a large diameter, magnetically coupled, axial fan is employed, providing gas flow velocities of up to 90 m/s. The laser delivers maximum average output powers of more than 500 W as KrF excimer and 2.5 kW as C02 TEA laser.
