Abstract

Measurements have been made of the gain on the principle Ne-like 3p-3s transitions (J = 2 to 1, J = 1 to 1, and J = 0 to 1) for Cu, Ge, Se, Sr and Mo ions. The variation of the gain function of pump laser wavelength (1.06, 0.53, and 0.35 μm) and intensity has been investigated. Both solid and exploding-foil-type targets have been used. The purpose of these Ne-like experiments was to vary plasma conditions in an attempt to maximize the gain and to investigate transitions such as the J = 0 to 1, which have high predicted but not observed gains. In particular, the J = 0 to 1 transition at 43.15 angstrom has been studied in an attempt to produce a short-wavelength laser.
