The present invention relates to x-ray lasers employing hydrogenic lasing ions of nuclear charge Z, for n2 to 4 or 6 excitation, and radiating ions of nuclear charge Z2 for decreasing the n2 population density of the hydrogenic lasing ions of nuclear charge Z. It is an object of the invention to increase the population inversion and gain to saturation, to improve the overall efficiency, and to increase the plasma size by decreasing the population density N2.
