Abstract : This trip report discusses high power laser research being carried out at Optoelectronics Division of the Minister of International Trade and Industry 's (MITI's) Electrotechnical Laboratory (ETL) for the generation of coherent soft x-ray radiation based on interactions of in tense ultrashort-pulse lasers with rare gases. Over the past few years, ETL researchers have performed experiments to find out mechanisms associated with interactions of ultrashort-pulse lasers with rare gases. Experiments were performed using a femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser. The latest experimental results, as reported in LEOs '93, showed the observation of the 103rd harmonics order (7.6nm) in helium and the 95th harmonics order (8.2nm) in neon at laser intensities above 10 to the 15th power Watts/cm2.
