Paper Abstract

The kilo-electron-volt x-ray emission from picosecond laser plasma interactions is investigated using filtered x-ray PIN diodes and a time-integrated crystal spectrograph. Different laser pulse shapes are used. The conditions required to generate high-power, short-pulse duration x-ray line emission are analyzed. The plasma must be hot enough to ionize to the appropriate charge state and then cool rapidly to quench the emission.
