Abstract
We will review recent progress in the development of high repetition, high average power rate soft x-ray lasers at 10-20 nm wavelength at Colorado State University, and the compact diode- pumped solid state lasers that drive them. The latter includes the development of a 1 J picosecond laser capable of operating at 500 Hz repetition rate. Results that demonstrate soft x-ray laser operation at the highest repetition rate reported to date: 400 Hz, and prospects of the use of these lasers in applications are discussed.
