X-ray spectroscopic measurements are presented of the longitudinal electron density profile and the longitudinal and transverse electron temperature profiles for a laser irradiated gas jet. The authors attempt to verify their spectroscopic method by laser interferometry and by comparison of infrared quantities to those determined from laser plasma interaction simulations. Because temperature profiles were time dependent, a theoretical time dependent radiation transport code was used to analyze the data.
