Saturated outputs for the Ne‐like Ge and Ni X‐ray Lasers (XRLs) at 196 and 231 Å respectively are now routinely produced at RAL from long single targets. The pumping configuration of ∼100 ps pulses and a new simpler pump beam arrangement has been optimised with a typical XRL output of 3 mJ. Optimum coupling of the drive beams has been demonstrated through imaging of the XRL showing that target displacement of ∼100 μm is needed. The output of the Ni XRL has been characterised and maximised with a view to applications of X‐ray lasers such as Non‐linear Optics and Thomson scattering. The Ge XRL was optimised to carry out radiography of Aluminium foils driven by optical laser radiation.
