We discuss the processing of x-ray absorption spectra from photoionized plasma experiments at Z. The data was recorded with an imaging spectrometer equipped with two elliptically bent potassium acid phthalate (KAP) crystals. Both time-integrated and time-resolved data were recorded. In both cases, the goal is to obtain the transmission spectra for quantitative analysis of plasma conditions.

    The line profile of the 5So2-5P1 transition of atomic oxygen was measured by diode laser absorption spectroscopy. As a result, it was found that the absorption line profile had a wing component in the wavelength range detuned from the line center and was not fitted with a Gaussian function. The...
