Paper Abstract

We present new progress in the optimization and understanding of the transient collisional pumping scheme using an ultra-short sub-ps heating pulse. The effect of traveling-wave irradiation in enhancing the lasing output of the 4d-4p Ni-like Ag line is studied in detail. A new irradiation scheme using a frequency-doubled 600 ps pulse to preform a plasma is tested. Strong lasing is also obtained on a new line at 16.05 nm that we identify to a 4f-4d transition in Ni-like Ag. Finally we review our recent work in the development of applications of the 21.2 nm zinc laser for imaging or exciting matter. New experiments include the probing of a plasma by imaging Fresnel interferometry and a first attempts to demonstrate two-photon ionization in a xenon gas.
