Paper Abstract

Recent studies of soft-x-ray and XUV lasers in Ne- and Ni-like ions using the Asterix IV iodine laser as a pump are reviewed. Progress achieved includes the observation of new laser lines in a number of low to medium-Z Ne-like ions at wavelengths from 20 to 87 nm, the reduction of the driver energy for neon- like S to a value of 20 J and lasing in Ni-like Sn at 12 nm. We also present recent results in characterizing near- and far-field patterns and compare them with predictions of simulations, using a 2D hydrodynamic code combined with a ray tracing code.
