1 February 1994 Traveling-wave excitation of an x-ray laser medium
Author Affiliations +
The experimental application of a scheme for travelling-wave excitation along a line focus to x-ray laser development is reported. The scheme utilizes an appropriately stepped prism or mirror inserted into the beam ahead of the focussing optics. It can be used for pulsed excitation down to about 1 ps. X- ray emission travelling with the velocity of light along a line focus is observed in an experiment using 500 fs to 1 ps KrF laser pulses.
