A neon-like yttrium laboratory x-ray laser (XRL) at 155 Å has been used to perform radiography, Moiré deflectometry and interferometry of plasmas created in various laser-initiated experiments. A system consisting of the XRL, multilayer mirrors, and multilayer beam splitters was assembled to obtain high resolution images of the plasmas. Work is continuing to improve the XRL-higher brightness, shorter pulse length, and enhanced coherence-through a program of simulations and experiments.
