Abstract:

A non-LTE dynamic argon pinch model has been applied to investigate the feasibility of creating conditions favorable to gain coefficients in excess of unity during the implosion of a cylindrical annular argon gas puff plasma. Preliminary results obtained from the SIMPLODE model suggest that it is possible to achieve measureable gain in the 3p-3s lasing transition at 434 in neonlike argon. Keywords include X ray laser, Gas puff, Implosion, and Non-LTE.
