Abstract

By using estimates and numerical simulation it is shown that an aluminum plasma sustained by CO2-laser radiation can radiate intensively in a vacuum in the hard ultraviolet range. High values of the conversion coefficient are achieved for lower radiation flux densities than in the neodymium laser case.
