Abstract

Intense line radiation from plasmas of Mn VI, P IX, Al V, Al VIII, Al IX, and Al XI may be used to selectively pump population inversions in plasmas of C III, N IV, F VI, Ne VII, Na VIII, and Mg IX. Quasi-cw lasing is possible on 4p-3d and 4f-3d transitions at wavelengths 2177-230 A. At the extreme ultraviolet wavelengths, 1-J, 10-ns laser output pulses at 10**8 w power levels are shown possible with existing discharge and laser technology.
