Abstract

We demonstrate that careful optimization of main-pulse–prepulse time delay and target curvature permits lasing and saturation to be achieved in Ni-like collisionally excited ions at pump energies that are achievable with tabletop systems. Saturation of the 13.9-nm, J=01 line of Ag, which has a gain–length product of 15.3, was obtained by use of a single prepulse pumping scheme and a pump energy of less than 30 J in 100 ps.
