A stable narrow band atomic x-ray laser is near

An atomic laser operating at the shortest wavelength yet achieved has been created by bombarding a copper foil with two X-ray pulses tuned to slightly different energies. The results may lead to ultrastable X-ray laser. The technology is not yet ready for primetime, Young, notes, the laser did not achieve saturation and some tests, such …
