High-temperature plasmas were produced by focusing 1-05 jum, lOOpsec laser pulses onto Al layer targets at a mean irradiation of 3-10 13 Watt/cm 2 . By means of simultaneous measurements of the thermal x-ray emission and the frequencyquadrupled laser pulse we observe a 20 ± 15 psec delay of the x-ray peak relative to the peak of the incident laser pulse. In addition, modulations on the trailing edge of the driving pulse appear strongly enhanced in the x-ray signature.
