Parametric X-Ray amplification in plasmas

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Parametric amplification using stimulated Raman or Brillouin scattering in plasma may generate extraordinarily intense x-ray pulses. Particle-in-cell simulations suggest that ion-based Brillouin amplification provides efficient x-ray amplification.
