Abstract

Tunable narrowband extreme ultraviolet radiation in the range 91-95 nm is produced by sum-frequency mixing of the outputs of a visible pulsed dye amplifier (seeded by a ring dye laser) and of a seeded second-harmonic Nd : YAG laser and subsequent frequency tripling in a gas jet of xenon. The capability of this scheme to provide tunable narrowband extreme ultraviolet radiation is demonstrated in several spectroscopic studies. The bandwidth of this system (0.01 cm
