Abstract

We have identified intense extreme-ultraviolet emission spectra within the 5–20-nm wavelength region, originating from transitions in the Xe8+, Xe9+, Xe10+, and Xe11+ ion species, which were generated in high-current pulsed capillary discharges operating with xenon gas. We have also obtained a time-dependent estimate of the plasma electron temperature for these plasmas at peak pulsed current densities in the range of 400–800 kA/cm2.
