The recent results of the demonstration of the lasing action at 13.5 nm in transition to ground state of LiIII at 2 Hz repetition rate using two lasers is being presented in this paper. A gain length of GL approximately equals 5.5 was measured in the 5 mm long, 0.3 mm diameter, LiF microcapillary using a 50 mJ, 250 fsec UV laser beam. The initial plasma was created in the microcapillary by a low power, relatively long pulse Nd/YAG laser. In order to shed light on observed unusually high efficiency of the ionization of the atoms in microcapillaries, the subpicosecond UV laser beam transmissions through the plasma in microcapillaries were measured. Strong dependence of the beam transmission on the delay time between inial plasma formation with the Nd/YAG laser and the sub-picosecond UV laser was recorded. The final part of the paper discusses some necessary conditions for an extension of the present results towards the shorter wavelength lasers with an emphasis on the presently conducted experiments at Princeton University for the generation gain at 4.8 nm in BV.
