Two-dimensional modeling of magnesium exploding-foil experiments shows that spontaneous emission from regions outside of line focus makes the measurement of induced emission and gain difficult. An improved target design is proposed that solves the spontaneous-emission problem by replacing the foil by a ribbon. The new targets consist of an aluminum ribbon on a Formvar sheet with the potential 4-3 lasing line at I11 Å for H-like Al. We comment on what conditions are required for lasing in the 3-2 line of H-like Al at 39 Å.
