Here are 4 x-ray emission spectra of the 3p1/2→2s1/2 transition in neonlike germanium and 2 x-ray emission spectra of Lyαand Lyαof hydrogenlike magnesium.  These were taken at the electron beam ion trap at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  Two crystals were used and thus, there are two peaks detected for each line.  The experiment was performed under the auspices of the U. S. Department of Energy by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory under contract No. DE-AC52-07NA27344.
