A VUV and soft x-ray light source based on spontaneous anti-Stokes scattering from atomic population stored in a metastable level is described. Unique properties of this source include narrow linewidth, tunability, linear polarization, picosecond time scale, and quite high spectral brightness. We show how the maximum source brightness, within its narrow linewidth, is that of a blackbody at the temperature T of a metastable storage level.
