Paper Abstract

The physics of the acceleration of planar foils to high velocities by laser-driven ablation is being studied for the inertial confinement fusion application. The motion and density of these foils was studied by spectrally resolved flash x radiography, using an imaging crystal spectrograph. These results will be compared to our earlier flash x-ray studies using pinhole camera imaging, which does not afford spectrally resolved images.
