Abstract

We have developed compact collisional-radiative models to describe the ionization balance and excitation mechanisms in neon-like selenium x-ray laser plasmas. These models can be used for calculations of the ionization dynamics, detailed emission spectra, and gain coefficients. Careful attention has been paid to indirect processes such as dielectronic recombination, excitation-autoionization, and resonant excitation. We discuss the importance of different atomic processes and model approximations in the ionization balance and gain calculations. These results will be compared to experimental measurements and to previous calculations.
