Abstract

Results from recent recombination x-ray laser experiments carried out on the Nova laser using exploding ribbon aluminum targets irradiated with 100 ps pulses of 0.53-μm light are described. Data indicated that the plasma was insufficiently ionized to produce recombination pumped gain in H-like Al. Some evidence of weak amplification was seen for several transitions in He- and Li-like Al and H-like O, but no definitive measurement of amplification could be made. It is clear for the target and irradiation conditions studied that stimulated emission did not dominate over spontaneous emission for the candidate lasing lines.
