Title: Vanadium-pumped titanium x-ray laser

Abstract

A new laboratory x-ray laser is described that is resonantly photopumped by two 3{ital d} {r arrow} 2{ital p} emission lines in fluorinelike vanadium ({ital Z} = 23) and lases on several 3{ital p} {r arrow} 3{ital s} transitions in neonlike titanium ({ital Z} = 22). Calculations show that five of the laser lines have gains greater than 5 cm{sup {minus}1} for reasonable values of the pump lines, with the shortest wavelength of the five being at 32.65 nm.
