Abstract:

Investigation of the energy structure of multicharged ions formed in a hot laser plasma requires progression from the vacuum ultraviolet to the soft X-ray region of the spectrum, as a large part of the transitions of astrophysical interest lie precisely in this range. In the apparatus described in the report for analyzing the soft X-ray radiation of a laser plasma, a convex crystal was used as the dispersing element. A spectrogram was obtained containing about 40 lines of highly ionized iron in the region of 10-16A.
