Paper Abstract

X-ray streak cameras are a major diagnostic in the study of laser-produced plasmas (LPP's) and laser-driven inertial confinement fusion (ICF). Using highly sensitive cesium iodide photo-cathodes they have a temporal resolution of tens of picoseconds and a spatial resolution of tens of micrometers in the image plane. A brief introduction to the physics of LPP's and ICF is followed here by two applications, viz, implosion dynamics and time-resolved spectroscopy.
