Paper Abstract

In the 1980's many exciting advances in the field of soft x-ray lasers took place. A novel experimental set-up was developed at Princeton to improve the performance and extend the wavelength range of existing soft x-ray lasers. In th1s paper a new target manipulation system capable of remotely aligning multiple targets in a vacuum chamber within a magnetic field is described Alignment to the magnetic field orientation, incident pump laser and the two axial diagnostics: a high resolution spectrometer equipped with a multichannel array and a time resolved imaging spectrometer is presented. We include a brief explanation of the Macintosh- Camac based data acquisition system. In addition we discuss the possibifity to increase in the near future the brightness of the x-ray laser beam by several orders of magnitude by developing a cavity with multilayer mirrors.
