Abstract

We have demonstrated repetitive operation of a table-top λ = 13.9 nm Ni-like Ag soft-x-ray laser that generates laser pulses with 10 μ J energy. The soft-x-ray laser is enabled by a Ti:sapphire laser pumped by high-repetition-rate frequency-doubled high-energy Nd:glass slab amplifiers. Soft-x-ray laser operation at 2.5 Hz repetition rate resulted in 20 microwatt average power.
