X-ray instrumentation in the LLL Laser-Fusion Program

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The LLL Laser-Fusion Program includes an active experimental effort to measure the distributions in energy, space and time of pulses of soft x-rays (.2 to 10 keV) radiated by laser-induced plasmas. Requirements for high resolution in these measurements clearly preclude the use of conventional x-ray diagnostic techniques. The following examples from our program of advanced x-ray instrument development are described. (1) Wavelength-dispersive spectrographs with fractional-electron volt resolution at several keV and imaging systems with 3 micron resolution over a 100 micron source. (2) Advanced solid state x-ray sensors that recover data from these instruments in a more expedient manner than ... continued below

(2) Advanced solid state x-ray sensors that recover data from these instruments in a more expedient manner than photographic film. (3) Microcomputer-controlled stand-alone spectrograph data systems and minicomputer-based integrated systems that can deal with the large array of data generated by the high resolution instruments. (4) An electrostatically-deflected x-ray streak camera with moderate spectral and spatial resolution and a timing resolution of better than 15 ps.
