We report, for the first time, that the energy of femtosecond optical laser pulses, E, with relativistic intensities I > 10(21)  W/cm(2) is efficiently converted to X-ray radiation, which is emitted by "hot" electron component in collision-less processes and heats the solid density plasma periphery. As shown by direct high-resolution spectroscopic(More)
X pinches have been successfully developed as point sources of soft x-rays for radiography, but the parameters of the micropinch plasmas that produce the x-rays are not well established. To determine micropinch conditions, time-resolved x-ray spectra produced by 2- and multi- wire X pinches have been collected using an x-ray streak camera with <10(More)
