Abstract

A transmission grating streaked spectrograph (SPARTUVIX) has been developed at the Centre d'Etudes de Limeil-Valenton for measuring the temporal evolution of soft-x-ray spectra in laser-produced plasmas. In this article the ideas behind the instrument are described as well as a description of the actual working diagnostic and its relevant components. This diagnostic has been used to look at the time behavior of x-ray laser emission, and a number of very interesting results have been obtained. A representative sample of these results will also be shown.
