Soft X-ray laser emission from W46+

Atomic Physics

Abstract

Using published atomic data, the populations of the excited states 1s22s22p63s23p63d94l (l= s, p, d, and f) – 1s22s22p63s23p63d10of Ni-like W have been calculated for electron densities in the range 1020–1023 cm-3and electron temperatures in the range 0.5–1 keV. For those transitions with positive population inversion factor, the gain coefficients are determined and plotted against the electron density.
