A Viable Substitute for the X-Ray Laser?

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Practical x-ray lasers would provide a revolutionary advance in medical imaging and advanced lithography, but several fundamental roadblocks have prevented their development. Now scientists at the University of Colorado at Boulder have demonstrated that phase-matched high-order harmonic generation can produce coherent extreme-UV radiation, and they predict that the technique will be extended to produce a laserlike beam of coherent x-ray radiation from a tabletop device. Generation of high-order harmonics in an ionized gas is not new, but what is new is the ability to phasematch the...Read full article
