Abstract

Simulations of plasma dynamics in a fast capillary discharge are presented. The temporal dependence of the plasma column’s resistance validates the one-dimensional model that was used in the numerical simulations. Numerical analysis of the laser absorption determines the pump parameter range for efficient excitation of longitudinally pumped transient collisional x-ray lasers.
