Abstract: Efficient low voltage operation of a XeCl laser has been achieved setting a reverse-bias unit on the discharge gap of a system working in the auto-prepulse (AP) mode. Efficiencies up to 1.7% with this improved device even at a charging voltage as low as 7 kV for the main storage unit and for the bias are reported. Experimental results are presented and discussed.
