Abstract

Measurements are presented of the X-ray emission characteristics of laser-irradiated flashlamp foils which are candidates to produce by resonant photoexcitation a population inversion in either a neon or fluorine lasant gas. Using the Shiva 1. 06 mu m laser, the authors heated Fe, Cr, and Ni foils to study the brightness and centroid energies of X-ray lines stemming from L-M transitions. Results indicate that appropriately bright and uniform sources can be produced.
