Abstract

We have generated a laser average output power of 2μW at a wavelength of 13.9nm by operating a tabletop laser-pumped Ni-like Ag laser at a 5Hz repetition rate, using a solid helicoidal target that is continuously rotated and advanced to renew the target surface between shots. More than 2×104 soft-x-ray laser shots were obtained by using a single target. Similar results were obtained at 13.2nm in Ni-like Cd with a Cd-coated target. This scheme will allow uninterrupted operation of laser-pumped tabletop collisional soft-x-ray lasers at a repetition rate of 10Hz for a period of hours, enabling the generation of continuous high average soft-x-ray powers for applications.
