Abstract

A one-dimensional code for the numerical simulation of negative branch unstable resonators with an intracavity aperture that are applied to high-gain, short-pulse XeCl lasers is described. The model predicts near- and far-field performance of the output laser beams. The intracavity aperture size is shown as an important parameter for control of the output beam energy and divergence. A comparison with experimental measurements is presented.
