1 May 1990 High-repetition-rate tabletop x-ray lasers
Author Affiliations +
Work in progress at M.I.T. toward construction of a tabletop x-ray laser with a repetition rate on the order of 0.1 Hz is reviewed. Potential collisionally pumped laser schemes in Nilike Mo and Nd-like U are described. The use of whisper gallery mirrors as an oscillator cavity is discussed. The design and construction of a zig-zag slab laser producing 5J in 100 psec pulses with a repetition rate of 0.1-1 Hz is reviewed.
