FIG. 1.

A schematic of the scattering target and beam orientation. Gold shields were used to inhibit the direct view of source x rays by the scattering detector. Low glass bodies were designed to minimize background due to bremsstrahlung radiation. Source x rays were scattered from the shock compressed target where they were collected from the side using a Bragg HOPG spectrometer.

FIG. 3.

Experimental measurements of , short pulse laser-produced x-ray scattering at is from heated carbon foam, after a , shaped long-pulse heater beam was turned on. Fits to the experimental data (Ref. 18) yield a temperature, ionization state, and density of , , and , respectively. This corresponds to .
