Abstract:

Threshold conditions for obtaining amplified spontaneous emission of x radiation, inclusive of strong line broadening and loss processes, are presented and evaluated for the case of pumping by ion-atom--ion-ion collisions. Quasistatic as well as pulsed operation of such x-ray lasers is seen to be realizable in terms of currently operative plasma systems. Suggestions concerning additional work are included.
