Extreme ultraviolet (EUV) spectra from laser produced bismuth plasmas were recorded in the 8-17 nm spectral region using a Nd:YAG laser with a pulse length of 8 ns operating at a range of laser power densities. Due to the broad-band emission at 8-17 nm, bismuth plasmas show promise as sources of quasicontinuous radiation in the extreme ultraviolet. When… CONTINUE READING
