Paper Abstract

A large volume long pulse excimer laser ((lambda) equals 308 nm) is used to generate a soft x- ray plasma source with long heating time at a power density in the order of 1012 - 1014 W/cm2. The characteristics of the plasma source for different laser pulse time evolution in the range 10-120 ns and for different target materials are investigated. In particular the most suitable source conditions (spectral energy distribution, time duration, etc.) for specific applications are analyzed.
