Paper Abstract

One promising way to achieve ultra-short pulse amplification in XUV laser amplifiers rests on nonlinear processes involving such phenomena as Rabi oscillations. A criterion for such behavior to occur in currently available XUV lasers is derived. Two-dimensionalMaxwell-Bloch simulations of short pulse amplification are presented in the case of Ni-like Ag pumped in grazing incidence and seeded by a high-order harmonics pulse. From numerical seed parameter optimization, it is shown that an ultrashort, high intensity, quasi-π XUV pulse can be produced in that system.
