(Color online) (a) Omega multicone laser illumination and (b) comparison of measured and analytic x-ray flux ratio estimate vs cone angle for 59° and 42° beams.
(Color online) (a) Time integrated x-ray emission measured in Omega implosion experiments and (b) gated thin wall images and x-ray intensity vs laser intensity recorded during first NIF hohlraum experiments.
(Color online) 2D LASNEX calculations of ICF design with LEH shields: (a) total laser power in the inner and the outer cones and (b) calculated inner (solid lines) and outer (dashed lines) cone x-ray emission vs time: unfiltered and transmitted through cocktail wall; (c) postprocessed x-ray emission in the hohlraum for two times during the ICF pulse.
(Color online) Dynamics of thin wall hohlraum wall heated by ICF-like x-ray drive calculated with 1D LASNEX; while burn through occurs for cocktail wall at the end of the drive , the radiation is fully confined for wall.
