- This paper models recent experiments in which a solid titanium target was illuminated by several joules of combined energy from a nsec laser pulse to create a preplasma followed by a psec laser pulse to drive the gain. Gains greater than 200 cm⁻¹ are predicted for the Ne-like Ti 3p ¹S₀ → 3s ¹P₁ transition at 32.6 nm which is driven by the monopole collisional excitation. High gain is also predicted for the 3d ¹P₁ → 3p ¹P₁ transition at 30.1 nm which is driven by a combination of collisional excitation and self photopumping. We also discuss the possibilities for driving a Ne-like Ge laser using this approach. For the Ni-like ions we model a solid molybdenum target under similar conditions used for Ti and predict gains greater than 300 cm⁻¹ for the Ni-like Mo 4d ¹S₀ → 4p ¹P₁ transition at 18.9 nm which is driven by the monopole collisional excitation. High gain is also predicted for a self photopumped 4f ¹P₁ → 4d ¹P₁ transition at 22.0 nm and several other transitions driven by inner shell collisional ionization.
