The ratio of isoelectronic lines was used to measure the electron temperature of subnanosecond and picosecond plasmas of a range of two-element materials: NaF, Mg-Al alloy, and KCl. Modelling shows that although populations may be far from steady-state in picosecond plasmas, the ratio of isoelectronic lines may be nearly steady-state, simplifying interpretation. Contour plots of the ratios of a number of isoelectronic helium-like line-pairs, suitable for steady-state electron-temperature interpretation, are provided.
