Paper Abstract

This study deals with the mechanic impulse transmitted to a solid target by soft x rays. We have measured the impulse transmitted to thin aluminum layers by x-ray radiation around 1.2 keV produced by a laser-irradiated copper target. The results are compared to radiative hydrocode simulations with the code XRAD.
