Abstract : A soft x-ray figured optics has been incorporated into a spectrometer with a multi-channel detector to enhance signal levels from short pulse laser produced plasmas. Laser produced plasmas are a source of soft x-rays but their usefulness is limited by their relatively small time averaged fluxes. To increase the utility of these sources a spectrometer has been designed which incorporates a figured multilayered soft x-ray optic and a multi-channel detector.
