Paper Abstract

A small-scale X-ray laser system for operations near 191 A at a repetition rate of 6 ppm is being developed on the basis of the Ni-like collision excitation scheme of Maxon et al. (1986). Based on the idea of Hagelstein (1988), an attempt is made to use low-Z material (instead of high-Z materials commonly used in collisional excitation schemes), which is to be pumped with a series of short pulses rather than with one long pulse. It is predicted that favorable density and temperature conditions will be present after a few initial pulses to generate gain on the order of 5-10/cm.
