    The transient nature of x-ray laser is studied. For a drive pulse even as short as 500fs, the x-ray laser gain still shows a quasi-steady state behavior. A real transient nature can only be seen when the x-ray laser is driven by a laser pulse with a duration as short as tens of femtoseconds. A...
