Abstract : The focus of this program was the development of extreme ultraviolet (XUV) sources, and their application to scientific problems. Laser development concentrated on the laboratory-scale Xe Auger laser at 109 nm; we also developed broad bandwidth incoherent sources. The primary application area was the development of high resolution, microscopic imaging techniques. Such techniques should have a number of applications, and be particularly useful in the life sciences. This report presents a summary of the program accomplishments, presentations, and copies of papers published.
