How to use FDTD to generate water window soft x - ray with strong relativistic laser? :)

    Could you provide more information on what you are trying to do? Generating x-rays with a laser would certainly require solving some nonlinear, relativistic effects. Likely coupling to a to an electron plasma, which be difficult if not impossible to with FDTD. X-rays themselves are typically much more like particles than waves and could more efficiently handled with a ray tracer, if you can model the material properties at these frequencies.
