Paper Abstract

Our earlier papers showed that laser gain is possible on the innershell 2s-2p transitions of Ne-like ions. This result was confirmed by more comprehensive calculations. In more recent works it was shown that laser gain is also possible on transitions between highly excited states. We summarize these results and present atomic-kinetic calculations for gain values along the Ne-like sequence for argon, iron, krypton, silver and xenon. For these ions the optimum plasma conditions are found for all possible laser transitions. We have also found some unknown laser transition in Ni-like tantalum and the optimum plasma parameters for laser action on these transitions.
