Abstract

This paper measures x-ray conversion efficiency from plasmas produced with a prototype high average power Nd:glass laser. This laser produced pulses of 13 ns FWHM duration with maximum energies of 20 J at 1.053 μm wavelength and 12 J at 0.527 μm wavelength. Solid targets of various L-shell emitters as well as one M-shell emitter (solid Xe) were examined using the fundamental and frequency-doubled wavelengths produced with this laser. Conversion efficiencies better than 12%/(2 π sr) were measured for all targets using 0.527 μm laser light.
