Paper Abstract

University Paris XI has developed a facility, which called LASERIX, intended to realize and use for applications transient collisional X-ray laser (XRL) beamlines at various wavelengths. It is based on the effect caused by beamlines of the ultra-intense infrared laser (100TW) rip into the high-density and high-temperature plasma, providing XUV laser pulses at alterable wavelengths of 7-40nm This soft-X laser source is widely used in biology, bio-medical, solid physics, plasma physics and many other domains. In order to make LASERIX a stable XUV laser source, the stable infrared beams are neededThe stability of the beams enhances the energy of X laser pulses. A system of detecting temperatures in different points of the laser chain and monitoring laser beam has been developed. For the second step, a new compressor has been built to produce auxiliary infrared laser beam which helps to improve the XUV pulse's energy. This article elaborates on the design and installation of them with the results discussed.
