Paper Abstract

Two novel schemes for efficient x-ray laser generation from laser-produced plasma and capillary discharge-driven plasmas are described. The combination of nano-structured targets with the high energy ultrashort pulse lasers can result in the generation of laser-produced plasmas that could lead to high brightness sources of incoherent multi-KeV radiation and x-ray lasers of short pulse duration at shorter wavelengths. The generation of 0.5-1 keV x-ray laser radiation from a Ni-like U plasma created using excitation from a Petawatt laser is analyzed. The efficient excitation of capillary discharge plasmas in micro-capillary discharge channels is discussed.
