Paper Abstract

We discuss upgrades and development currently underway at the Z-Backlighter facility. Among them are a new optical parametric chirped pulse amplier (OPCPA) front end, 94 cm 42 cm multi layer dielectric (MLD) gratings, dichroic laser beam transport studies, 25 keV x-ray source development, and a major target area expansion. These upgrades will pave the way for short/long pulse, multi-frame, multi-color x-ray backlighting at the Z-Accelerator.
