We studied theK-shell X-ray emission from plasmas produced by laser irradiation of Al foils. Electron temperature and density of the emitting region were estimated from line ratio measurements. Spectra obtained from the rear face of the foils showed that X-ray transmission is influenced by energy transport in the foil.
