Paper Abstract

LASERIX is a high power laser facility intended to realise and use for applications transient collisional excitation (TCE) X-ray lasers (XRLs) at various wavelengths, using grazing incidence pumping (GRIP) configuration with 10 Hz repetition rate. In addition new types of XRL schemes giving rise to emission at short wavelengths will be developed using the high energy LASERIX driver with 0.1 HZ rep-rate. Thus, this laser facility will both offer Soft X-ray lasers in the 40-10 nm range and synchronised auxiliary IR beam that could be also used to produce XUV sources. This experimental configuration highly enhances the scientific opportunities of the facility. Indeed it will be possible to realise both X-ray laser experiments and more generally pump/probe experiments, mixing IR and XUV sources. Then, this facility will be useful for the community, opening a large scale of investigations, including imagery and irradiation.
