Abstract:

Objects of this patent application include Generating coherent x-rays. Use Na and Ne to produce x-rays and providing a thermal buffer between Na and Ne to prevent the Na from heating and overionizing the Ne and precluding the generation of coherent x-rays. These and othe objects are accomplished with an apparatus for generating coherent x-rays comprising an Na layer a Ne layer a thermal transparent buffer layer located between and in contact with the Na layer and the Ne layer a lower power laser to heat the Ne layer and a higher power laser to heat the Na layer. Keywords Photon pumping.
