Paper Abstract

Recombination and collisionally excited x-ray laser schemes in hot dense plasmas require ideally the existence of gradient-free uniform conditions for times long enough to generate high x-ray yield. The potential for imploding cylindrical plasmas to circumvent refraction effects associated with long plasmas generated from thin foils is discussed.
