    High-efficiency, high-power pulsed XeCl* and KrF* lasers pumped with an electron beam and laser systems based on these lasers have been developed. This paper describes the principles embodied in their development and design. The results of investigations on the formation of high-quality, high-power pulses are presented. Pulses with a radiation energy of up to 2000 and 100 J have been obtained at λ = 308 and 249 nm, respectively, with a minimum 10 μrad divergence of the beam.
