We report on the generation of intensities of 1019 W cm-2 by focusing the output beam of a table-top hybrid dye - excimer laser system operating at 248 nm. The laser system uses a pulsed dye laser and a single, commercially available excimer gain module. Considerations and optical arrangements for the optimization of the phase-front and the beam homogeneity of ultraviolet excimer amplifiers are presented.
