    The driver and target parameters required to extend the successful results from an exploding foil Ne-like-Se soft x-ray laser at 206 Å towards wavelengths of 40 Å are investigated. The power requirements are found to scale as λ-4, which is quite costly. The principal constraint is the...

    Indications that solid-state lasers will reach wall-plug to light efficiencies of 30% or more make a laser-driven vacuum-accelerator increasingly appealing. Since at the wavelength of relevant lasers, dielectrics may sustain significantly higher electric field and transmit power with reduced...
