Paper Abstract

Line profiles taking into account ion (Stark) broadening, ion dynamic effect, and electron collisions are calculated for the Al10+ lines at 154.7 and 105.7 angstrom, and for the S13+ line at 206.5 angstrom in recombination lasers. The first two lines are formed of three fine structure components, while the third is constituted of nine components, and the resulting gain may be defined accordingly. The electron collisions yield an homogeneous broadening, while the Stark interaction with neighboring ions is responsible for an asymmetry of the whole profile. Consistently with the experimental determination of the gain, we calculate the total intensity involving the population inversions of the set of components which contribute to the lasing radiation, and deduce an effective small-signal gain coefficient. We discuss our results and compare them to experimental gains.
