Experiments and theoretical modeling are reported that demonstrate significant gain-length products at wavelengths below the carbon K-edge at 44angstrom. Two different schemes have been examined. The first is collisional excitation of Ni-like ions, which is an analog of the 3s-3p Ne-like lasing schemes demonstrated in selenium (Z equals 34) through molybdenum (Z equals 42). Three-body recombination schemes in H-like and Li-like ions are also currently being examined as a means of producing gain at shorter wavelengths.
