Abstract : A beam smoothing technique (SWA) was used to produce a linear germanium plasma (12 mm x 100 microns). The plasma parameter uniformity along the amplification axis was studied with various X-ray diagnostics. Time resolved monochromatic images of the 3d-2s quadrupole emission (E2) regions have been obtained giving information on the dynamics of 3d-3p core excited lasing.
