Paper Abstract

A new multichannel x-ray/extreme ultra violet (EUV) spectrometer is developed for monitoring the time history of x-ray/EUV spectral line intensities from a hot plasma to estimate an electron density and temperature of plasmas. Each independently controlled channel includes a crystal (or multilayer mirror) and a fast x-ray diode. At the same time, an imaging transmission grating is applied to study a spatial distribution of spectral line intensities in a wide spectral region with time gated resolution. The multichannel spectrometer can be applied for measurements of polarization- dependent spectra which will be used for diagnostics of electron beams and measuring a magnetic field in z-pinch plasmas.
