Title: Soft x-ray imaging system for picosecond time-resolved absorption spectroscopy using a femtosecond-laser-plasma source

Abstract

We have developed an imaging system for time-resolved soft x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The system consists of a femtosecond-laser-plasma x-ray source for time-resolved measurements and an x-ray microscope with critical illumination for imaging. The temporal and spatial resolutions were 23 ps and better than 12.5 {mu}m, respectively. We applied this system to the measurement of an aluminum ablation plume induced by irradiation with a 120 fs laser pulse. The shift of the L-shell photoabsorption edge in the expanding plume was observed in the spatiotemporally resolved absorbance spectrum. The space- and time-resolved x-ray absorption spectrum of an expanding laser ablation plume was clearly obtained using the developed system.
