We report the application of a technique for performing opacity measurements on hot, dense plasmas. Plasmas were generated by using the x rays emitted from a laser-produced gold plasma to heat an aluminum sample. Observations were made using the technique of point projection spectroscopy. The distribution of ion stages observed is compared with predictions based on Saha distributions, at densities and temperatures deduced from hydrodynamic simulations.
