ABSTRACT
Describes an ultra-soft x-ray duochromator that is based on two multilayer mirrors installed on the reversed field pinch experiment (RFX) reversed field pinch. Design of the duochromator; Use of the device to monitor the time behavior of the hydrogen and helium-like resonant transitions of carbon and oxygen; Determination of plasma effective charge.
