Abstract A surprisingly long delay time (of the order of 10 ..mu..sec) is found necessary for maximum enhancement of the output power and energy from the main pulse of a 0.1-liter-volume Blumlein-driven XeF excimer laser when another fast-discharge pulse of about 0.1-..mu..sec duration and 10% of the main discharge energy is used to preionized or otherwise ''precondition'' the gas mixture. At such optimal timing, a factor-of-5 enhancement of the UV laser output (3510<lambda<3537 A) has been observed in a He : Xe : NF/sub 3/ mixture at an overall generation efficiency of 1.3%.
