The Generation of X-Ray Laser Radiation on SOKOLP-P Laser Facility
The transient collisional excitation (TCE) scheme was used to obtain generation of X-ray laser radiation on the 3p-3s transitions of the Ne-like Ti-ions at 10 TW SOKOL-P laser developed at RFNC-VNIITF. The Nd-laser light was focused in a line with length from 2 up to 8 mm and width of 30 microns. Two successive pulses irradiated the polished Ti-slab. The duration of prepulse was equal to 400 ps and a pumping pulse had duration of 4 ps; the delay between pulses equals to 1.5 ns. The Nd-laser energy was about of 10 J and the ratio of energy in prepulse and basic pulses was equal to 1:2. The grating spectrometer equipped with a focusing mirror and CCD detector was used for measurement of the X-ray laser line at 32.6 nm. A small signal gain about of 30 cm-1 was obtained in experiments with target length from 2 up to 4 mm. The 32.6 nm line radiation with energy about of 1 ¼J and divergence of 9 mrad were registered in SOKOL-P experiments with target length of 8 mm.
