The new geometries for x-ray laser targets described in the preceding paper were experimentally examined at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics. These target are proposed as improvements on the single foil geometry used for x-ray laser generation at other laboratories.1-5 We describe a series of experiments which were aimed at measuring the spatial density profile of Ne-like nickel plasmas produced by double-foil targets. The initial experiments utilized a 1.5 mm line focus which was of sufficient length for studying the hydrodynamic behavior of the proposed new geometries. Results of experiments, using a 1-cm line-focus, which indicate gain in these targets are also presented. In all cases the target material was nickel.
