Paper Abstract

Multi-million degree plasmas produced at the foci of powerful lasers efficiently emit short intense pulses of soft x-rays. Recent x-ray measurements obtained with laser-repetition rates up to 10 Hz are reviewed. High average-power solid and gas laser systems with powers sufficient for x-ray generation are now being designed. New laser-plasma x-radiation sources should find extensive use in research and industry. Demonstrated and expected uses of x-rays from laser-heated plasmas are summarized.
