Paper Abstract

The use of multi-pulse irradiation of neon-like ions has been shown to produce orders-of-magnitude enhancement of x-ray laser output. Recent results obtained at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory are reviewed with an emphasis on understanding the reasons for the enhancement. Simulations with the fluid and atomic physics code EHYBRID are used to show that enhancement occurs because of a spatial enlargement of the gain region and consequent better propagation of the x- ray laser beam along the gain region.
