Spectral details of Kr(L) amplification are presented
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Figure 7. Spectral details of Kr(L) amplification are presented. These data correspond to file 677/18 May 2012. (a) Composite spectra are shown illustrating the axial (red) and transverse (brown) spectra. The transverse Kr(L) spectrum corresponding to Z = 0.3 mm is practically null; the axial von Hámos spectrometer, with the focal plane located at Z = 0.3 mm, as shown in panel (b), reveals sharp spectral structure with a width δλ,l 3 eV that is particularly obvious on the dominant Kr26+ 3s → 2p transition at λ 7.5 Å. The depth-of-field of the axial von Hámos spectrometer is estimated to be ≤ 300 µm, as indicated by the shaded zone centred at Z = 0.3 mm in panel (b). Compare these spectra to those presented in figure 6(a). (b) Transverse x-ray camera image of Kr(L) emission profile with a spatial resolution estimated to be ~50 µm. The axial position Z = 0.3 mm corresponds to the location of the focal plane of the axial von Hámos spectrometer.
Experimental evidence demonstrating amplification on the Kr26+ 3s→2p transition at λ 7.5 Å (~1652 eV) generated from a (Kr)n cluster medium in a self-trapped plasma channel produced with 248 nm femtosecond pulses is presented. The x-ray beam produced had a spectral width of ~3 eV and a corresponding beam diameter of ~150 µm, properties that were simultaneously determined by a two-dimensional x-ray spectral image formed with an axially placed von Hámos spectrometer and a matching Thomson image of the spatial electron density generated by the x-ray propagation.
