LEVEL INVERSION IN MULTIPLY CHARGED IONS AND POSSIBLE APPLICATIONS
A survey is given of plasma conditions which are known to produce population inversion between excited states in highly ionised atoms and to lead to light amplification by stimulated XUV emission. Recent successful experiments on the use of plasma medium to generate lasing action at XUV wavelengths are reviewed and the prospects for reaching shorter wavelengths are discussed.
