Dynamic x-ray detectors for high-energy-density experiments in high density
Author(s): Sabrina R. Nagel

Paper Abstract

Dynamic X-ray detectors at the National Ignition Facility play a crucial role on High-Energy-Density (HED) experiments. They record data in the form of X-ray spectra, hot spot emission profiles, radiographic images, et cetera. The fast (pico- to nanoseconds) time scales and harsh environments of the HED experiments at the NIF impose tight constraints on the performance of these instruments, both in terms of temporal and spatial resolution, background rejection as well as their survivability. We are constantly striving to improve the quality of the data collected by identifying, implementing, and integrating cutting-edge technology, such as the hybridized CMOS cameras from SNL [1]. Here we provide a summary of the how we utilize these multi-frame nanosecond cameras in our X-ray detectors for HED experiments.
