A thin layer of frozen neon is condensed onto a cryogenically cooled substrate for use in generating a neon plasma for x-ray laser research. The freezing process and quasi-equilibrium state of the layer are discussed with a phase diagram. Spectral purity of a neon plasma formed by laser irradiation is demonstrated with grazing incidence x-ray spectroscopy. Control of the layer thickness is possible to the point that a substrate spectrum is also obtained.
