Abstract
A model of the frequency and temporal variation of laser output incorporating the lifetime of stimulated emission and gain narrowing effects is shown to predict the minimum pulse durations possible with injection seeded amplification. We show that pulse durations significantly shorter than 1 ps will be difficult to achieve with plasma based x-ray lasers because of the narrow spectral bandwidth and long lifetime of the population inversion.
