Abstract
The absolute time of emission of the x-ray laser output with respect to the arrival of a 100-ps pump pulse has been measured with the aid of a calibrated timing fiducial. The results show the x-ray laser to appear up to 60 ps (80 ps) before the peak of the pump pulse in the case of the Sn (Pd) x-ray laser, which is in good agreement with results obtained from hydrodynamic, atomic physics, and raytracing simulations. The pulse duration was found to be ~40 ps for both the Sn and the Pd x-ray lasers.
