Title: Mshock, a thin layer Richtmyer-Meshkov instability experiment

Abstract

The Mshock campaign is studying the feed through of the Richtmyer-Meshkov instability (RMI) in a thin layer in the high energy density (HED) regime. Experiments utilize a beryllium shock tube filled with low density foam and a high density plastic to study the instability. Initial experiments were performed at the OMEGA laser facility and recently at the National Ignition facility. While the basic design of the experiment is the same, critical components were changed to optimize the data quantity and clarity for the more energetic NIF.
