Abstract : This report details the progress achieved by the Radiation Hydrodynamics Branch in X-Ray Laser experiments and modeling during FY92. Some of the experimental work discussed was carried out at Sandia National Laboratories in collaboration with NRL. It is divided into an executive summary and sections whose authors arc separately identified. The individual sections describe progress in photopumped x-ray laser research, calculations of x-ray inversions, intensities, and pulsewidths in plasmas created by ultraintense subpicosecond lasers, and effects of non-Maxwellian electron distributions on x- ray gain.... X-ray laser, Neonlike lasers, X-ray pulsewidth, Resonant photoexcitation, Population inversion, Ultra short pulse lasers, Spectroscopy, Pulsed power, Transient transport phenomena.
