An ultra-short pulse CPA laser system for x-ray laser driver has been developed with a combination of Ti:sapphire front end and Nd:glass rod amplifiers. This laser system has two beam outputs and each beam line produces 20J pre pulse and 20J main. This laser system is designed for x-ray laser pumping driver, especially for transient gain scheme. The new transient gain x-ray laser scheme with thin foil metal targets has been proposed. This scheme has higher laser energy efficiency and less x-ray laser refraction effect and makes possible to generate shorter x-ray wavelength with a compact table-top sized laser system. The electron temperatures of plasma heated with a short pre pulse and short main pulse have been calculated with 1D hydrodynamic code and obtained electron temperature higher than 1 keV with 20J laser energy. X-ray laser propagation is also calculated with gain guiding effect.
