Abstract

Experimental results of a two-stage Ni-like Ag soft X-ray laser operated in a seed-amplifier configuration are presented. Both targets were pumped applying the double-pulse grazing incidence technique with intrinsic travelling wave excitation. The injection of the seed X-ray laser into the amplifier target was realized by a spherical mirror. The results show amplification of the seed X-ray laser and allow for a direct measurement of the gain lifetime. The experimental configuration is suitable for providing valuable input for computational simulations.

Schematic overview of the Butterfly configuration; two XRL targets pumped in DGRIP. Dashed lines: IR pump beams. Dotted line: Seed XRL pulse. Solid line: Amplified seed pulse and ASE. The upper inset shows a recorded footprint pattern of the seed XRL and the ASE of the amplifier. The white dashed line indicates the target surface. The lower inset shows a close-up of the target geometry.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

Footprint patterns of the seed XRL for different delays and their horizontal line-outs. The white, dashed lines denote the target surface. The variation of the position of the seed XRL is due to pointing fluctuations.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Simulations of the temporal evolution of the amplified XRL pulse (red dots) for different arrival times of the seed XRL pulse: (A) 0 ps, (B) −2 ps. The data corresponding to the blue lines takes into account the losses due to ASE in the amplifier medium. Right: Standard deviation of the output intensity between the sole signal of the seed XRL (red dotted lines) and the seed together with the ASE (blue lines) for different delays (C).
