DEVELOPMENTS 2 . A The Design And Optimization of Recombination X - Ray Lasers

  • Published 2008

Abstract

This article explores a number of theoretical issues crucial to the understanding and design of extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) recombination lasers. Our interest in this area was sparked by strong evidence that the Balmer-cr line of hydrogen-like carbon at 182.3 A was being amplified in plasmas produced in a series of exploding-foil experiments performed on OMEGA.' The targets consisted of a Formvar (polyvinyl formal, CllH1805) layer, which contains the carbon, and a selenium layer. The laser action was the result of recombination onto fully stripped ions of carbon.
