Abstract

We report the demonstration of a gain-saturated 10.9nm tabletop soft x-ray laser operating at 1Hz repetition rate. Lasing occurs by collisional electron impact excitation in the 4dS014pP11 transition of nickel-like Te in a line-focus plasma heated by a chirped-pulse-amplification Ti:sapphire laser. With an average power of 1μW and pulse energy up to 2μJ, this laser extends the ability to conduct tabletop laser experiments to a shorter wavelength.
