A tabletop ultrafast soft x-ray has been generated from the laser-produce plasma with a femtosecond pulsed Ti:Sapphire laser. The estimated total flux of Al is of 2.2 × 109 photons/sec in 4π radian and the parameters related to the optical performance were obtained. The tungsten/silicon multilayer, flat quartz and bent thallium acid phthalate (TLAP) crystal were used for monochromatization of soft x-ray to refine the aluminum radiation and compared the respective value of EE. To estimate the size of the x-ray source beam generated by a fs laser, the approximation using the FWHM obtained from the x-ray beam scan near the focal point was discussed, and the size of the diameter was about 9.76 μm.
