Paper Abstract

Slab germanium targets have been irradiated in a line focus geometry with 1-3 nsec FWHM, 1.06-micron laser pulses at irradiances of I equal to or less than 10 exp 13 W/sq cm. The effect of varying the rise-time of the driving laser pulse on the amplification of 3-3 soft X-ray lasing lines is investigated. Results of short-pulse (100 psec FWHM) experiments have also shown gain on the same lasing transitions, but at substantially higher irradiances of I equal to or greater than 3 x 10 exp 13 W/sq cm.
