(a) Schematic layout of the scale-0.7 Hohlraum target with directional locations of DANTE, static x-ray imager (SXI), and backscatter diagnostics (full aperture backscatter station and near backscatter imager). (b) Scaling of the (●) measured peak radiation fluxes compared with that of flux-limited XSN simulation with a flux limit of (—) 0.05 and of the DCA model with a flux limit of (- - -) 0.15. The peak radiation temperatures (◻) measured are also plotted.
(a) (●) input and (—) output signals from a cable calibration with the (- - -) deconvolved signal using the derived constrained least-squares filter. (b) (●)The input and (—) output signals from a cable calibration with the (- - -) deconvolved signal from an in situ calibration of the cable with a shaped pulse.
(a) Schematic setup of the calibration light box with a radiograph of a portion of a grid. (b) The calibration values of the sieve transmission using the light box.
(a) Schematic of the sphere target experimental layout viewed from (90–175) with location of the x-ray instruments in (polar-azimuthal) angles. (b) Plot of the (—) incident laser power and the (- - -) measured x-ray power vs time along with comparison of the integral of the radiated power from (—) a simulation and (- - -) the measured values as a function of time.
(a) Schematic diagram of the half-Hohlraum experimental layout with target dimensions. (b) DANTE measurements of the flux for the (- - -, gray) NIF early light half hohlraum experiments and the (—, black) current experiments using the same size target with the laser pulse shape for both the (- - -, gray) NIF early light and the (—, black) current experiments.
