NEW ASPECTS OF X-RAY LASERS PUMPED BY PHOTOIONIZATION
It is shown that a steady state inversion on hydrogenic states can be obtained if a fully ionized plasma is subjected to the appropriate kind of radiation. Two well defined cases are numerically investigated : 1. narrow band pumping radiation; 2. black body pumping radiation. Special emphasis is given to the question if radiative cooling of the plasma is sufficient to prevent a temperature increase of the electron gas which would destroy the inversion.
