Paper Abstract

Estimating the vulnerability is a key challenge for plasma diagnostics designed to operate in radiative background associated with megajoule class laser facilities. Since DT shots at OMEGA laser facility reproduce the perturbing source expected during the first 100 nanoseconds of a typical DT shot realized at National Ignition Facility (NIF) and Laser MegaJoule facility (LMJ), vulnerability of diagnostic elements such as optical relays or optical analyzers were experimentally studied and, if necessary, hardening approaches have been initiated to authorize their use at higher radiative constraints. Other facilities such as nuclear reactor or accelerator have been also used to estimate vulnerability issues as radiation induced emission of glasses or damage in multilayer coatings.
