Abstract
We propose a Ni-like Kr soft x-ray laser operating on the 4d1S0 - 4p1P1 transition at 32.8 nm by a novel excitation scheme in which optical field ionization prepares Ni-like Kr ion with almost 100% abundance and inverse bremsstrahlung heats the plasma efficiently. The numerical calculation based on the hot-spot model predicts that ultra-high gains greater than 1000 cm-1 in the low density plasma (Ne equals 5.6 X 1019 cm-3) for a driving laser intensity of 1.75 X 1016 W/cm2. With a longitudinally pumping, output energy greater than 1 (mu) J and an energy efficiency of approximately 10-5 are expected with 200-torr Kr gas.
