Abstract

Complex spectral structures located between the resonance lines of H-and He-like MgXII and MgXI ions were recorded in experiments on plasma heating by the radiation of a low-power short-wavelength excimer XeCl laser (12-ns pulses with an energy of 2 J). The above spectral structures were shown to arise from transitions in the so-called hollow multicharged ions, i.e., in ions with an empty 1s-shell, which were previously observed in laser produced plasmas only with ultrahigh-power femto-and picosecond laser facilities having extremely high-contrast laser pulses.
