Conference paper


Spectra of multicharged ions are now widely investigated both in laboratory and astrojihysical plasmas. The typical temperature values of such plasmas are from about 200 eV up to 2 keV and even higher (i.e. (2+20) 106K). The sources of laboratory plasma which were used in spectroscopy are laser produced plasmas, vacuum sparks, theta-pinch devices, tokamaks and some others.Data used in this report concern the first two sources. As for astrophysics, the solar corona is, in fact, a unique object, for which good line spectra are obtained in the X-ray region. The study of the line spectra of non-solar X-ray sources is extremely difficult due to small flux values. However, it seems very probable that the first such spectra are to be obtained with the large X-ray telescope of the USA orbiting satellite HEAO-B which is to be launched this autumn.
