Paper Abstract

Experiments were performed in indirect drive at the Phebus laser facility to study the ablation front Rayleigh-Taylor instability. Brominated plastic targets with sinusoidal modulations were accelerated with a temporally shaped soft x-ray pulse created in a hohlraum. The growth of the perturbations was observed by face-on radiography using a new Wolter-like microscope and the acceleration was derived from separate side-on velocity measurements.
