Paper Abstract

We are investigating the generation of short pulse short wavelength x-rays for pumping inner- shell x-ray lasers by photo-ionization. In contrast with previous proposals, we are looking at the use of a single line as an efficient means of pumping these lasers. As a first step we are optimizing the flashlamp x-ray conversion efficiency and characterizing the x-ray pulse length.
