Abstract

We have performed experiments on germanium plasma irradiated with 0.53-m laser light. A soft-x-ray amplification was observed. 2- and 2.4-cm-1 gains were measured for the two brightest lasing lines at 232.2 and 236.2. A temporal analysis of lasing lines and gain is reported. Simulations by a series of computer programs compared favorably with the measured values and contributed to the clarification of some experimental results.
