Short wavelength lasers and their applications

Abstract:

Most of this thesis describes experiments conducted in order to generate soft x-rays of energy >67 eV from a laser-generated plasma, in order to pump the Xe III Auger laser at 109 nm.

In attempts to obtain the optimal sub-nanosecond laser pulses for amplification in a very simple KrF (248 nm) laser a compact KrF oscillator was used to obtain 1 ml pulses of FWHM duration 2 ns, and plasma-truncated reflection of a focused KrF beam from metal targets gave 1.8 ns pulses. Longer puls...
