(Color online) The experimental arrangement.
The temporal profile of the x-ray drive as measured by a filtered PCD viewing the mounting hole over which a target package would ordinarily be mounted.
A typical radiograph (bottom) with key (top). This radiograph is for a target comprising a -deep, tamper. There is no gold flashing on the surface of the pusher.
(Color online) A comparison of HYADES simulation results for the rearmost half of the payload with the experimental data. Top: Data from a target comprising a –deep, tamper is illustrated (radiograph shown in Fig. 3). Bottom: Data from a target comprising a –deep, tamper is illustrated. There is no gold flashing on the surface of pusher in either case. Experimental data is marked with ∎. Simulation data (continuous lines) is shown for the 20 Lagrangian fluid cells comprising the rearmost half of the payload.
Final velocity of pusher rear surface. (a) length, no gold flash. (b) length, no gold flash. (c) length, gold-flashed pusher. Behavior is increasingly subsonic toward the right-hand side. HYADES results at corresponding points in the trajectory are indicated by ∎.
