It is shown that curved slab targets are effective in compensating x-ray refraction due to electron density gradient in the expanding plasma. Significant improvement in the beam divergence and laser intensity has been observed. Soft x-ray laser of 1 mrad divergence has been generated in double- pass amplification of a collisionally-excited Ne-like Ge laser with the curved target. Generation of a polarized beam with a polarizing half cavity is described. Initial results of in-line holography as well as Fourier transform holography using the Ge laser as the light source are also presented.
