A time-resolving X-ray crystal spectrograph is used to study the emission of high lying Lyman states in order to determine the electron density in a laser target plasma. The results are analyzed for a number of experiments and the sensitivity of the technique is shown. The ability of the diagnostic procedure to yield accurate densities is compared with the usual time-integrated diagnostic procedures.
