Abstract

Recent developments and progress on collision pumped soft X-ray lasers using the VULCAN glass laser at Rutherford-Appleton Laboratory are presented. This includes saturated output operation of a double target germanium system within a low Fresnel number half-cavity, measurement of the spatial coherence of the output beam in the above and other geometries, use of the beam to demonstrate almost-equal-to 0.15 mum spatial resolution in a full-field microscope and initial studies of other Ne-like and Ni-like systems. Future directions, in the light of new developments of VULCAN facilities, are outlined.
