Abstract

This talk describes the use of x-ray lasers to probe high density plasmas using a variety of diagnostic techniques. Taking advantage of recently developed multilayer beamsplitters, of constructs and uses a Mach-Zehnder interferometer operating at 155 angstrom to probe 1-3 mm size laser produced plasmas with peak electron densities of 4×10 21cm -3. A comparison of the results with computer simulations is presented.
