Emission at 13.2 nm from the 4d 1S0 −4p 1P1 laser transition of Ni‐like Cd was observed in a cadmium vapor plasma column excited by a high‐current capillary discharge. The dynamics of the plasma were studied using time‐resolved soft x‐ray pinhole images and hydrodynamic simulations. The pinhole images show that the plasma column maintains a good symmetry up to the time of maximum compression. Fifty‐five Cdxxi lines were identified in the 12.7–18.4 nm region with the assistance of calculations performed using the Slater‐Condon method with generalized least‐squares fits of the energy parameters.
