Several X-ray and XUV diagnostic techniques have been stimulated by research on high density plasmas produced in laser fusion, by X-ray laser studies, astrophysics and by studies using synchrotron generated X-rays. Most of these techniques can be crudely divided in two classes : The first class includes in particular time resolved spectroscopy and one dimensional (1D) space-time imaging. A comprehensive description of several time resolved devices can be found in Ref. 1. The se-cond class includes purely space resolved imaging systems. This paper in no way attempts to review all progress in X-ray diagnostics. However since most of the diagnostic devices use some imaging system, generally of microscope type, we shall review the principal two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional imaging systems with emphasis on the relative image properties and on the progress introduced by the advent of X-ray multilayers.
