Abstract

This paper will review charge exchange vacuum ultraviolet and soft x-ray lasers using ion beams1,2. The basic idea of the reaction is that one avoids the rapid Auger rates characteristic of many other x-ray laser schemes by picking up an electron in the outer shell of a hydrogen-like, helium-like, or lithium-like ion (see Table I).
