The design of a repetitively pulsed HF(DF) gas-discharge laser with an active-medium volume of 60 × 2.3 × 1.2 cm3, a pulse radiation energy of 1.6 (1.2) J, and a pulse repetition rate of 1-2 Hz is described. A zeolite-based absorber is used to stabilize the energy characteristics of the laser operating without the forced circulation of the laser mixture. An energy decrease by 50% after ∼103 laser shots is obtained at a pulse repetition rate of 1 Hz.
