Using low and high prepulses to enhance the J=0-1 transition at 19.6 nm in the Ne-like germanium XUV laser

Abstract:

We report a study of the effect of prepulses on XUV lasing of Ne-like germanium for an irradiation geometry where ≈20 mm long germanium slab targets were irradiated at ≈1.6 × 1013 W cm-2 using ≈0.7 ns (1.06 μm) pulses from the VULCAN glass laser. Prepulses were generated at fractional power levels of ≈2 × 10-4 (low) and ≈2 × 10-2 (high) and arrived on target 5 and 3.2 ns respectively in advance of the main heating pulse. For both the low and high prepulses the output of the 3p-3s, J=0-1, line...
