Paper Abstract

A four-frame, fast gated microchannel plate x-ray detector has been used on the OMEGA laser system to obtain two-dimensional, time-resolved pinhole camera images (in the 1-2.5 keV region) of imploding laser fusion targets. The camera, which has a frame time less than 150 ps has proven to be a valuable tool, both in recording implosion dynamics and in detecting and identifying implosion non-uniformities.
