Abstract:

This report details the progress achieved by the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch in X-Ray Laser experiments and modeling during FY93. Some of the experimental work discussed was carried out at Sandia National Laboratories in collaboration with NRL. It is divided into an executive summary and sections whose authors are separately identified. The individual sections describe progress in photopumped x-ray laser research, inversions and gain in plasmas which can be created by ultraintense subpicosecond lasers, and prospects for achieving a Ly alpha laser. X-ray laser, Population inversion, Transient transport phenomena, Neonlike lasers, Ultra short pulse lasers, Spectroscopy, Resonant photoexcitation, Pulsed power, X-ray pulsewidth.
