    We measured in a large spectral range from 180 eV to 20 keV the x-ray emission from aluminum and glass targets irradiated by 150 fs laser pulses at intensities of approx. 10[sup 17] W/cm[sup 2]. Unexpected large differences are observed at photon energies above approx. 1 keV, where the Al target...
