We have demonstrated diffraction from Si(111) crystal using X-rays from highly ionized Ar ions produced by laser irradiation with an intensity of 6$$times$$10$$^{18}$$ W/cm$$^{2}$$ and a pulse duration of 30 fs acting upon micron-sized Ar clusters. The measured total photon flux and line width in the He$$_{alpha1}$$ line (3.14 keV) were 4$$times$$10$$^{7}$$ photons/shot/4$$pi$$sr and 3.7 eV (FWHM), respectively, which is sufficient to utilize as a debris-free light source for time-resolved X-ray diffraction studies.
