Abstract

Photoresonant excitation has been examined as a mechanism for enhancing the maximum gain achievable on a H-like recombination scheme. Modelling of the system, using the MED101/NIMP package, has shown that the photoresonant excitation of the 1s-3p (Ly(beta)) transition at 12.644 angstrom in a H-like fluorine plasma by a Be-like manganese transition at 12.643 angstrom offers the possibility of considerable gain enhancement on the 3d-2p Balmer alpha at 80.91 angstrom over the simple H-like system. Some experimental evidence for a transitory increase in intensity on the Balmer-alpha has been obtained for a fluorine-coated C-fiber system pumped by irradiating a manganese stripe in close proximity to the fiber.
