Abstract

A table-top excimer laser system generating sub-ps pulses was used to irradiate solid targets at intensities of up to 4×1015 W/cm2. Soft X-ray spectra of various materials were measured. The X-ray conversion efficiencies were between 1-5%. Streak camera measurements showed instrument-limited X-ray pulse duration of a few ps.
