Photonic band gaps for the soft x rays, formed in the periodic structures of solids or dense plasmas, are theoretically investigated. Optical manipulation mechanisms for the soft x rays, which are based on these band gaps, are computationally demonstrated. The reflection and amplification of the soft x rays and the compression and stretching of chirped soft x-ray pulses are discussed. A scheme for lasing with atoms with two energy levels, utilizing the band gap, is also studied.
