Paper Abstract

We have recently developed a gated monochromatic x-ray imaging diagnostic for the national Inertial-Confinement Fusion program. This new imaging system will be one of the primary diagnostics to be utilized on University of Rochester's Omega laser fusion facility. The new diagnostic is based upon a Kirkpatrick-Baez microscope dispersed by diffraction crystals, as first described by Marshall and Su. The dispersed images are gated by four individual proximity focused microchannel plates and recorded on film. Spectral coverage is tunable up to 8 keV, spectral resolution has been measured at 20 eV, temporal resolution is 80 ps, and spatial resolution is better than 10 micrometers .
