Abstract

Inverted population densities are measured in a laser-produced carbon plasma and interpreted in terms of absolute gain coefficients in the 1%/cm range for potential amplification in the XUV at 52-nm wavelength. Scaling to higher gain through increased ionization at higher pumping intensities is attempted, and a factor of 2 enhancement is indicated.
