Paper Abstract

Analyses of optical components consisting of a metal reflecting layer, a beryllium energy-sharing layer, and a fused silica substrate were done using LXRT, Livermore's version of the XRT (X-Ray Transport) computer code. These are compared with calculations for components lacking the beryllium layer. Our analyses show that the addition of the beryllium significantly hardens the system against x-rays. The mechanisms for this increased hardness are apparent from time-dependent tem-perature and enthalpy plots presented here.
