Paper Abstract

We will present experimental and theoretical characterizations of germanium line-focused and stripe x-ray lasers (XRLs). Key experimental parameters we will study include images of emission profiles of the laser blow-off, angular divergences, XRL output intensities, and ionization balances as we vary XRL designs. We will compare the experimental results with 2D laser deposition and hydrodynamics simulations using LASNEX, and study the changes in ionization balances and level populations from post-processing LASNEX results.
