Schematic view of twin-slit imaging for side-on x-ray backlighting.
Typical data of streaked twin-slit imaging of side-on x-ray backlit foam target filled with liquid deuterium. Self-emission from the target, backlighter source, and backlit target are recorded.
Density profiles (a) at 1.7 ns and (b) 2.3 ns. ILESTA-1D simulation results are shown for FP and SH calculations. The target is irradiated by the drive laser from the left. Error bars correspond to statistical error of the signal intensity. Time corresponds to the rise of the main drive pulse. Space corresponds to the initial target surface.
Comparison of experimental data of the target trajectory with ILESTA-1D (FP) simulation. Thin lines are flow diagram of the simulation. Data points and solid line are peak density positions of experimental observation and simulation result, respectively. Left surface of the target is irradiated by the drive laser. Also shown with solid line on the left is the drive laser intensity history. Indicated time and space correspond to those in Fig. 3.
