Dense non‐Maxwellian plasmas have been created at the high energy nhelix‐laser test bed facility under well defined hydrodynamic conditions. Space resolved hot electron induced Kα‐emission from the target surface has been observed simultaneously with the x‐ray radiation emission of highly charged target ions. Two‐electron inner‐shell transitions are introduced as reference lines to provide a unique parameter determination. Non‐Maxwellian non‐LTE kinetics simulations for opaque plasmas as well as Stark broadening calculations of complex autoionizing levels provide a proof of the proposed methods. Excellent agreements with the data are demonstrated. Space resolved x‐ray Doppler spectroscopy provides fast ion energy distribution.
