Paper Abstract

We have observed lasing on Ne-like 3s-3p line from titanium (32.4 nm), Ni-like 4p-4d line from silver (13.9 nm) and tin (11.9 nm) with the transient collisional excitation (TCE) scheme that uses combinations of a long pre-pulse (approximately ns) and a short main pulse (approximately ps) or a short pre-pulse (approximately ps) and a short main pulse (approximately ps). A gain coefficient of 24cm-1 have been measured for plasma length up to 4mm with silver slab targets and 14cm-1 up to 6 mm with tin slab targets. We have installed a step mirror in the focusing system to generate traveling wave on the target. The traveling speed on the target is measured to be 3.08 cm/s and very close to the traveling speed of light. The traveling wave system improves the gain coefficient to 35cm-1 from 24cm-1 for Ni-like Ag and to 30cm-1 from 14cm-1 for Ni-like Sn. The strong gain saturation has been observed for the Ni-like Ag and Ni-like Sn. The output energy of the N-like Sn x-ray laser is 20 (mu) J. Spatial beam profiles of propagating x-ray lasers through gain plasma have been measured and are indicating localization of very high gain area and x-ray laser refraction.
