Abstract

A pump scheme with one long and two short pump pulses is proposed, in a grazing incidence pumping x-ray laser (XRL) configuration. A 360 ps long pulse, prepares a plasma in a low charge state. Then, an initial short pulse ionizes the plasma to an optimal charge state, while the second short pulse induces strong collisional excitation in the gain region. With only 200 mJ of pump energy on target, a compact Ag XRL at 13.9 nm with a gain coefficient of 55cm1 was achieved.
