A spectroscopic diagnostic which will be useful for laser-driven thick-shelled ablative compression targets is demonstrated. The diagnostic which uses spectral line emission from lithium-like bromine provides information from several allowed lines in a small spectral range and can be used to estimate ground state number density as well as electron density in the compressed core.
