Paper Abstract

Difficulties involved in maintaining large gain coefficients in plasma columns longer than 1-2 cm are examined with particular reference to the potential use of lithium-like recombination schemes for pumping X-ray lasers with a moderate pumping power. The discussion focuses on the role of plasma nonuniformity along the amplification path due to large-scale and small-scale inhomogeneities of the pumping optical laser. Two methods of smoothing nonuniformities are considered: the use of random phase plates and wall-confined plasmas.
