Paper Abstract

Optical fibers coupled to a scintillator and a photosensitive device are incorporated into our plasma diagnostic instruments to investigate subnanosecond high energy CO2 laser-target interactions. These detectors incorporate features for miniaturization and high temporal resolution. However, we are faced with the serious problem of radiation generated in the fibers by relativistic electrons and high energy x rays. Use of spectral filter and relay optics, and appropriate signal subtraction, it is possible to overcome some of the difficulties and obtain useful information.
