Paper Abstract

We report the observation of line emission at 13.2 nm from the 4d 1S0 -4p 1P1 laser transition of Ni- like Cd in a plasma column created by a high-power capillary discharge. Time-resolved soft x-ray pinhole images of the plasma column show that the plasma column maintains good symmetry up to the time of maximum compression. The observed dynamics of the plasma column is compared with model simulations. These results advance the possibility of observing laser amplification in Ni-like Cd at 13.2 nm and in other short-wavelength Nickel-like ion transitions in a discharge-created plasma.
