LABORATORY X-RAY LASERS: FUTURE PROSPECTS AND GOALS.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Our present goal is to design, demonstrate and utilize a sub 44 Angstrom, single transverse mode number, saturated output (GL greater than equivalent to 16-20), 1 GW x-ray laser. In this talk I summarize our progress to date, critique the various successful amplification techniques and describe some new ones which may make it possible to achieve our goal.
