    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...

    Several methods involving x-ray spectroscopic methods for diagnosing laser-imploded targets are discussed. The first method involves the recording of absorption lines formed in the target tamper, out of the continuum emitted by a hotter compressed core. This method is applied to ablatively...
