Abstract:

The purpose of this program is to study the physics, technology, and spectroscopy of extreme ultraviolet XUV, and soft x-ray lasers. The objective of our work is to develop a class of fixed frequency and tunable lasers whose wavelengths span the 100 A to 1000 A spectral region. Interested also exists in developing concepts and ideas that are applicable to other regions of the spectrum. Work is in several areas. These are 1 The development of extreme ultraviolet sources of radiation based on pumping with synchronous traveling wave x rays. 2 The theoretical study and the beginning of experimental studies on lasers without inversion and on laser induced transparency. Studies were begun on new types of nonlinear optical processes using electromagnetically induced transparency.
