Abstract

Detailed spectroscopic studies on extreme UV emission from laser plasmas using tin and lithium planar solid targets were completed. At 13.5 nm , the best conversion efficiency (CE) for lithium was found to be 2.2% at intensities near 7 × 10 10 W cm 2 . The highest CE measured for tin was near 5.0% at an intensity close to 1 × 10 11 W cm 2 .
