Paper Abstract

A recently developed laser-produced plasma channel is shown to be a promising means to produce an efficient, compact soft x-ray laser. The channel provides a route for efficient high power laser pumping through optical waveguiding of the pump. The channel also acts as a waveguide for generated soft x-rays, since it has wavelength independent mode structure. Channel creation and guided laser pulses of moderate duration and energy can be highly effective in driving nonequilibrium behavior of these plasmas to generate substantial population inversions.
