Paper Abstract

Measurements of x-ray conversion efficAncies9have been made for plasmas produced by KrF laser pulses at intensities of 2.5-7.5x10 ''W cm Initial measurements of x-ray fluence have been made using a simple set of filtered x-ray diodes and an x-ray calorimeter for targets with atomic numbers from 4 to 82. More detailed measurements have been made of three elements: aluminum, titanium and gold. These have included measurements of the angular dependence of emission, the spectral characteristics of emission in the 100-1000 eV range and time dependent measurements of the spectrum using an x-ray streak camera. The angular and spectral characteristics have been used to more accurately determine the energy conversion efficiency for these elements.
