Abstract A new-generation x-ray laser project is explained. It is based on the transitions in Pd-like ions in nanoplasmas. The gain coefficient is calculated for the 4d{sub 3/2}{sup 9}5d{sub 3/2}[J=0]-4d{sub 3/2}{sup 9}5p{sub 1/2}[J=1] transition ({lambda}{approx_equal}10.8 nm) in Pd-like tungsten. It is suggested that a cylindrical target made of nanostructured tungsten is pumped in the longitudinal direction by a laser pulse with energy 1-2 keV and duration {approx}500 ps. For this pump pulse the target density and dimensions are calculated, as well as the temporal variations of the optimal plasma parameters for attaining gL {approx} 14. The energy yield in the 10.8-nm line is more than 10{sup 20} eV.
