Recovery of a CVD diamond detection system from strong pulses of laser produced x-rays

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We are studying the response of a CVD diamond detector to a strong x-ray pulse followed by a second weaker pulse arriving 50 to 300 ns later, with a contrast in amplitude of about 1000. These tests, performed at the LLNL Jupiter laser facility, are intended to produce charge carrier densities similar to those expected during a DT implosion at NIF, where a large 14.1 MeV neutron pulse is followed by a weak downscattered neutron signal produced by slower 6-10 MeV neutrons. The number of downscattered neutrons must be carefully measured in order to obtain an accurate value for the ... continued below

Description

We are studying the response of a CVD diamond detector to a strong x-ray pulse followed by a second weaker pulse arriving 50 to 300 ns later, with a contrast in amplitude of about 1000. These tests, performed at the LLNL Jupiter laser facility, are intended to produce charge carrier densities similar to those expected during a DT implosion at NIF, where a large 14.1 MeV neutron pulse is followed by a weak downscattered neutron signal produced by slower 6-10 MeV neutrons. The number of downscattered neutrons must be carefully measured in order to obtain an accurate value for the areal density, which is proportional to the ratio of downscattered to primary neutrons. The effects of the first strong pulse may include saturation of the diamond wafer, saturation of the oscilloscope, or saturation of the associated power and data acquisition electronics. We are presenting a double pulse experiment that will use a system of several polycrystalline CVD diamond detectors irradiated by 8.6 keV x-rays emitted from a zinc target. We will discuss implication for a NIF areal density measurement.
