A series of experiments have been carried out at the Rutherford-Appleton laboratory to investigate X-ray scattering from laser produced plasmas. Most experiments shave been based on Rayleigh scattering from bound electrons and are sensitive to ion-ion correlations which lead to a scattering structure factor with a peak at a distinct angle of scatter, which depends on the plasma density and temperature. At the time of writing an experiment is being carried out to investigate the possibility of soft X-ray Thomson scattering with a Ne-like Ni X-ray laser operating at 23.1nm. We will report the experimental set up and any results that are obtained.
