Paper Abstract

We have measured the response of W/C multilayers to x-ray fluxes on the order of 150 MW/cm2 using laser generated plasmas and found that these multilayers will maintain near peak reflectivity for at least 1 ns but are eventually destroyed. A description of the experiments and data analysis methods is given. The results of the experiments will be compared with hydrodynamic code simulations.
