Abstract
We describe the construction and operation of a 109 nm, photoionization-pumped, single-pass laser in Xe III. The laser is pumped by soft x-rays emitted from a laser-produced plasma in a traveling-wave geometry. Using a 3.5 J, 300 psec , 1064 nm laser pump pulse, we measure a small-signal gain coefficient of 4.4 cm-1 and a total small signal gain of exp(40). The laser is fully saturated and produces an output energy of 20µJ in a beam with 10 mrad divergence.
