Abstract : We have designed and tested an ellipsoidal reflector to pump short-wave- length lasers by broadband soft-x-ray radiation from laser-produced plasmas. Xenon gas supplied by a pulsed gas valve with a slit nozzle, which was placed in the vicinity of the second focus, with irradiated longitudinally along the optical axis. Soft x-ray absorption and VUV emission resulted from the 4d inner-shell excitation was investigated.
