Abstract The effect of the conditions of discharge on the output radiation parameters and efficiency of an electric-discharge XeCl laser pumped by 20 ns pulses is studied experimentally. It is shown that the highest specific energy extraction {approx}3.9 J L{sup -1} atm{sup -1} from the active medium is realised in a discharge formed by pronounced macroinhomogeneities. The maximum laser efficiency of 2.7% is attained for discharge current densities of 1.2-1.4 kA cm{sup -2}. (active media)
