Abstract : Recent developments in X-ray laser (XRL) research resulted in the experimental observation of laser amplification at many wavelengths in the soft X-ray domain 1 ranging from Lambda =28 nm to Lambda = 4 nm. Within the next few years powerful sources of coherent XRL radiation at those wavelengths will also be available. This sets a stage for the research on the interaction of intense coherent X-ray radiation with matter, in particular on X-ray nonlinear optics.
