Title: Degree of variation in the pattern of radiation amplified by a XeCl laser system

Abstract

The radiation divergence is measured upon amplification of a beam 1.5 - 150 mm in diameter. The radiation wave front with a spatially nonuniform intensity distribution caused by diffraction from a small-diameter aperture is shown to experience significant changes upon amplification in the active medium. The amplifier active medium excited by an electron beam permits amplification of the radiation with a divergence {approx}10 {mu}rad without introducing appreciable distortions. In the transportation and the amplification of a beam more than 75 mm in diameter, the main distortions of the wave front arise from turbulent air flows and the aberrations of the optical elements. (control of laser radiation parameters)
