A 308-nm XeCl laser with an active volume of 600 L is studied experimentally. The laser is pumped by a radially convergent electron beam from an accelerator with vacuum insulation. The output energy of 1.9 kJ and power of ∼ 7 G W are achieved upon pumping the Ar-Xe-HCl mixture. The laser pulse FWHM is ∼ 250 ns.
