This report details the progress achieved by the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch in X-Ray Laser experiments and modeling during FY91. Some of the experimental work discussed was carried out at Sandia National Laboratories in a cooperative program with NRL. It is divided into sections whose authors are separately identified. Topics presented in detail include the first demonstration of a soft x-ray inversion by resonant photopumping, detailed analysis of other photopumped x-ray laser scheme, feasibility of population inversions in fluorine driven by ultra short pulse lasers, fully time dependent radiation transport modeling, and analysis of pumping mechanisms in neonlike lasers.
