Abstract

The x-ray laser is now being used as a tool for measuring the behavior of hot dense plasmas. In particular, the 155 angstrom Yttrium laser has been used to study transient plasmas by both radiography and Moire deflectometry. These techniques have been used to probe plasma at electron densities exceeding 1022 cm-3 the short pulse of this x-ray laser probe has made it possible to directly image ion densities in directly driven thin foils to an accuracy of 1-2 μm.
