Abstract : This is the final report for a SBIR Phase II investigation of xenon Chloride waveguide laser arrays. Using electrodeless microwave discharge techniques, we have constructed an optimized XeC1 waveguide laser that could serve as the basic building block for a XeCl laser array with average power in the watt range. The beam produced by the laser is highly multimode. This has been shown to limit the efficiency of the laser, and will hinder its application to coherent arrays....
