Paper Abstract

Progress in laser fusion research has increased the need for detail and precision in the diagnosis of experiments. This has spawned the development and use of sophisticated sub-nanosecond resolution diavostic systems. These systems typically use ultrafast x-ray or optical streak caAleras in combination. with spatially imaging or spectrally dispersing elements. These instruments provide high resolution data essential for understanding the processes occurrilltg in the interaction. of high. intensity laser light with targets. Several of these types of instruments and their capabilities will be discussed. The utilization of these kinds of diagnostics systems on the nearly completed 100 kJ Nova laser facility will be described.
