Abstract:

In the paper, the authors analyze alternate methods for the soft x-ray pulse generation which rely on the unprecedented values of light flux attainable with high pulse energy lasers. For this purpose, in section 2 the authors outline some aspects of laser-plasma interaction pertinent to attainment of thermonuclear reaction temperatures. The authors note that presently considered techniques for x-ray generation from laser plasmas are based on inertial plasma confinement.
