Abstract

The temporal coherence of an injection-seeded transient 18.9 nm molybdenum soft x-ray laser was measured using a wavefront division interferometer and compared to model simulations. The seeded laser is found to have a coherence time similar to that of the unseeded amplifier, ~1ps, but a significantly larger degree of temporal coherence. The measured coherence time for the unseeded amplifier is only a small fraction of the pulsewidth, while in the case of the seeded laser it approaches full temporal coherence. The measurements confirm that the bandwidth of the solid target amplifiers is significantly wider than that of soft x-ray lasers that use gaseous targets, an advantage for the development of sub-picosecond soft x-ray lasers.

(a) Experimental set up used to measure the temporal coherence of an 18.9 nm molybdenum plasma amplifier. Interferograms of the ASE (b) and seeded (c) 18.9 nm laser beam with a zero path difference between the arms of the interferometer. A 300 nm thick aluminum filter was used. In the ASE case (b) the beam is composed of several juxtaposed speckle structures. Two of them are apparent (orange white zones) in the fringe area. In the seeded case (c) one single spot is apparent, corresponding to the amplified seed beam.

(a) Visibility as a function of the path difference measured in the injection-seeded mode for the plasma amplifier lengths of 2 mm (a), 3 mm (b) and 4 mm (c). (d) Visibility data corresponding to the 4 mm ASE amplifier. The solid-line curves show the best analytical fit of the experimental data. Different types of analytical functions were used: (a) sum of two Gaussians; (b) sum of Gaussian and decreasing exponential; (c) decreasing exponential; (d) sum of two Gaussians
