Collisionally pumped soft X-ray lasers now operate over a wavelength range extending from 35-300 A.These sources have high peak brightness and are now being utilized for X-ray imaging and plasmainterferometry. In this paper we will describe our efforts to probe long scalelength plasmas using Moiredeflectometry and soft X-ray imaging. The progress in the development of short pulse X-ray lasers using adouble pulse irradiation technique which incorporates a travelling wave pump will also be presented.
