An investigation was made of the conversion of radiation from multijoule XeCl* lasers in solutions of organic compounds. The advantages of using circularly pumped liquid-filled cells in conversion of high-power ultraviolet radiation were demonstrated. In cells with axicon reflectors the output energy obtained from a solution of coumarin 102 was 3.2 J and the conversion efficiency was 31%. The feasibility of conversion of radiation with the pump energy up to 100 J was analysed.
