The first self-injected excimer laser is described. A continously variable output pulse duration between 2 and 100 ns has been achieved by an opportune intracavity loss modulation. The output laser radiation consists of a train of pulses or of a single dumped pulse. In thee latter case, output pulses with peak power up to 2 MW have been obtained, with remarkable stability and reproductivity characteristics. © 1993.
