The electron-velocity distribution function of the discharge plasma in a rare gas halide excimer laser was diagnosed by the Thomson scattering method. The measured electron-velocity distribution function shows that the predicted value by the calculation is accurate. Those results assure that the calculation method which is based on the kinetic calculation using the circuit equations, the Boltzmann equation and the rate equations is effective in the excimer laser simulation.
