Paper Abstract

X-ray emission spectra in the wavelength range of 2 - 13 nm from 21 kinds of material (carbon through tin) irradiated either by a 4 J/35 ns slab Nd:glass laser or by a 0.5 J/8 ns Nd:YAG laser were recorded with a grazing incidence spectrometer equipped with a microchannel plate detector. The absolute photon intensities of these spectra were determined by simultaneous measurement of the emission from a molybdenum plasma with the grazing incidence spectrometer and a transmission grating spectrometer. For the carbon plasma, the electron temperature and density are derived from the spectrum and the conditions for intense Lyman (alpha) line are discussed. Finally, we describe the application to an x-ray microscope with the laser-produced carbon plasma.
