Paper Abstract

We describe several experiments on Nova that use laser-produced plasmas to generate x-rays capable of backlighting dense, cold plasmas ((rho) approximately 1-3 gm/cm3, kT approximately 5-10 eV, and areal density (rho) l approximately 0.01-0.05 g/cm2). The x-rays used vary over a wide range of hv, from 80 eV (x-ray laser) to 9 keV. This allows probing of plasmas relevant to many hydrodynamic experiments. Typical diagnostics are 100 ps pinhole framing cameras for long pulse backlighter and a time-integrated CCD camera for a short pulse backlighter.
