Bremsstrahlung is a function of electron density, temperature, and impurity contamination and is sensitive to electron temperature in the energy range of the soft X-ray. Evolution of the soft X-ray intensity profile suggests the collective motion of electrons or magnetohydrodynamic activity in a plasma.
