Abstract

We demonstrate a high-gain nickel-like xenon-ion x-ray laser, using a picosecond-laser-irradiated gas-puff target. The elongated x-ray laser plasma column was produced by irradiation of the gas-puff target with line-focused double picosecond laser pulses with a total energy of 18 J in a traveling-wave excitation scheme. Strong lasing at 9.98 nm was observed, and a high gain coefficient of 17.4 cm-1 was measured on the transient collisionally excited 4dā€“4p , J=0ā€“1 transition for nickel-like xenon ions with target lengths as great as 0.45 cm. A weak nickel-like lasing line at a shorter wavelength of 9.64 nm was also observed, with a gain coefficient of 5.9 cm-1 .
