This paper summarises our recent progress achieved in the characterisation and understanding of the Ni‐like Ag transient X‐ray laser pumped under traveling wave irradiation. We carried out two experiments at the LULI CPA laser facility. Several diagnostics of the plasma emission at the XRL wavelength or in the keV range indicate the presence of small‐scale spatial structures in the emitting XRL source. Single‐shot Fresnel interference patterns at 13.9 nm were successfully obtained with a good fringe visibility. For the first time we obtained plasma images with a high spatial resolution about 1 μm, showing the effects of pumping parameters on the X‐ray laser far‐field.
