Paper Abstract

Basic characteristics of soft x-ray lasers generated as amplified spontaneous emission are described. Experimental results on soft x-ray amplification in neon-like germanium ions, obtained recently at the Institute of Laser Engineering, are reported. By comparing the experimental results with a simplified model on amplified spontaneous emission, basic parameters such as coherence and brightness of the Ge soft x-ray laser are evaluated.
