Paper Abstract

X-ray emission nonuniformity has been observed in recombination X-ray laser gain media. Time-resolved results show that the nonuniformity enhances when the laser heating stops. This phenomenon can be reasonably explained by an instability associated with the density dependence of radiative cooling losses. Discussion of the influence of the nonuniformity on the gain make-up for recombination X-ray lasers has been presented.
