Title: Measurements of laser generated soft X-ray emission from irradiated gold foils

We measured soft x-ray emission from laser irradiated gold foils at the Omega-60 laser system using the Dante photodiode array. The foils were heated with 2 kJ, 6ns laser pulses and foil thicknesses were varied between 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 μm. Initial Dante analysis indicates peak emission temperatures of roughly 100 eV and 80 eV for the 0.5 μm and 1.0 μm thick foils, respectively, with little measurable emission from the 2.0 μm foils.
