Paper Abstract

We report on the results of a series of experiments aimed at the full characterization of gain-saturated nickel-like soft x-ray lasers at wavelengths between 14.7 nm and 12.0 nm. The experiments include measurements of the gain-length product, output energy, near-field and far-field intensity distributions, and coherence properties of Pd and Sn x-ray lasers. Most of the experiments were done at a drive irradiance of 10 TW/cm2, using a 1054-nm drive energy of 30 J in 100-ps pulses.
