Abstract : Experiments showing improved levels of population inversion of soft x-ray transitions in laser heated plasmas were performed with a frequency tripled ND+3: glass laser facility. Optics have been fabricated which will allow line focus experiments to be performed with this facility in 1982. Design studies on soft x-ray cavity reflectors have continued. (Author)
