Paper Abstract

Measuring the X-ray environment generated at the center of the NIF target chamber is a core capability required for understanding target implosions and other physics experiments. Recently an upgrade was performed to the recording systems employing modern digital technology and additional remote-control capabilities. Together, significantly decreasing manual setup burdens, increasing accuracy, stability and availability while contributing to shot rate improvement, overall efficiency and cost of operations reduction on NIF. We present the systems chosen, improved calibration techniques employed and some of the key features including the addition of self-test capabilities.
