Abstract

We report on measurements of the output power from the J = 2–1 (λ = 15.5 nm) neonlike yttrium soft-x-ray laser. The results show peak powers of 32 MW in an output pulse width of 200 ps (FWHM) and an integrated energy of 7 mJ. The output is consistent with the expected saturation intensity of this laser and makes this system one of the brightest XUV sources available.
