Abstract

Spectra of highly charged Kr ions, produced in an EBIT, have been recorded in a broad x-ray energy band (0.3-4 keV) with a microcalorimeter detector. Most of the spectral lines have been identified as transitions of B- to Al-like Kr. The transition energies have been determined to 0.2% accuracy. An EBIT plasma model has been created and used to calculate a synthetic spectrum of highly charged Kr as well as to determine a charge state distribution of Kr ions inside the EBIT.32.30Rj, 34.50.Fa, .34.80.Dp, 32.70.Fw
