Paper Abstract

We studied seeding of two x-ray laser transitions, 4d-4p at 32.8 nm in Kr8+ and 5d-5p 41.8 nm in Xe8+. The amplifying medium is generated by focussing a high energy circularly polarized, 35 fs 10 Hz Ti: sapphire laser system in a few mm cell filled with gas (xenon or krypton).We succeeded to increase from a factor 10 to 200 the input HHG energy, without deteriorating their optical qualities. The resulting beam was polarized, coherent and we estimate the output energy to be about 1 μJ.
