Abstract : A two part study of soft x-ray laser media is presented. Experimental observation of significant population inversion on the Balmer alpha transition in hydrogen-like flourine at 81 A in a line-focus laser plasma is reported. An analysis of the expected performance of soft x-ray multilayer reflects is presented. This volume discusses the development of an XUV (extreme ultraviolet) amplifier.
