Paper Abstract

Au, 11, Pb and Bi spectra emitted from high temperature, Te ~ 1 keV, Texas Experimental Tokamak (TEXT) plasmas have been recorded and analyzed in the 30-50 Å range. Narrow (5-10 Å) and bright quasi-continuous bands originating from 4d104fn-4d94fn+1 transitions are emitted below 44 Å by these atoms 25 to 35 times ionized. If laser produced plasmas would be optimized for this emission, the bands could represent bright sources to be used for soft x-ray microscopy in the water window.
