EUV radiation of pulse high-current proximity-wallstabilized discharges
Proximity wall stabilized, fast (>4×1011 A/s), high current (>40 kA) discharges are capable to create long, dense, hot, “stable”, non-equilibrium plasma column, suitable e.g. for amplification of EUV and soft X-ray radiation. Amplification on the wavelength of 46,9 nm of Ne-like Ar has been demonstrated by many laboratories; this paper shows its application to micro- and nano-structuring of solid surfaces. Simultaneously, an appraisal study is performed on possibilities to shorten the amplified wavelength: one way uses excited Ni-like Ag ions created at Ag wire explosion in water.
