A longitudinal space charge amplifier (LSCA), operating in VUV anmd soft x-ray regime, was recently proposed. Such an amplifier consists of a few amplification cascades (focusing channel and chicane) and a short radiator undulator in the end. The amplification mechanism is broadband and robust, it is practically insensitive to energy chirp and orbit jitter. Therefore, an LSCA can be considered as an alternative to a SASE FEL in the case of using laser-plasma accelerators as drivers of light sources. In this report we study generation of VUV radiation (below 100 nm) in an LSCA driven by a laser-plasma accelerator with the energy of 300 MeV.
