Paper Abstract

A neutron hardened x-ray streak camera has been used to report x-ray burn duration and time of peak emission from imploding ICF capsules at the National Ignition Facility with <30 ps. Recent characterization of the instrument using a NIST traceable High Energy X-ray reference source (HEX, National Security Technologies) will enable absolute capsule self-emission x-ray yield measurements (J/sr/keV). This manuscript describes the characterization procedure used and preliminary results of the x-ray sensitivity using three different thicknesses of the CsI photocathode.
