16 May 1994 Generation and characterization of recombination-pumped x-ray laser plasmas

A multi-terawatt laser was used to generate and characterize plasmas appropriate for recombination pumped x-ray lasers. Thomson scattering was used to determine the electron and ion temperatures of a laser-produced, high-density helium plasma on a subpicosecond time-scale. A recombination pumped x-ray laser on the Lyman-alpha transition of hydrogen- like lithium was also studied.
