Abstract : Extension of the Na Balmer-alpha recombination laser to larger gain-length product has been made with a simultaneous laser of F Balmer-alpha line under short pulse pumping. Up-to-date report including the collisional excitation Ge laser is also presented. We present recent progress in soft x-ray laser research at the Institute of Laser Engineering. Detailed characterization of the explosive mode Balmer-alpha soft x-ray laser has been made. Extension of the Balmer-alpha laser to a larger gain length product has been tested. We also tested the collisional excitation Ge laser with large gain length product and good beams quality.
