Title: Ti K{alpha} radiography of Cu-doped plastic microshell implosions via spherically bent crystal imaging

Abstract

We show that short pulse laser generated Ti K{alpha} radiation can be used effectively as a backlighter for radiographic imaging. This method of x-ray radiography features high temporal and spatial resolution, high signal to noise ratio, and monochromatic imaging. We present here the Ti K{alpha} backlit images of six-beam driven spherical implosions of thin-walled 500-{mu}m Cu-doped deuterated plastic (CD) shells and of similar implosions with an included hollow gold cone. These radiographic results were used to define conditions for the diagnosis of fast ignition relevant electron transport within imploded Cu-doped coned CD shells.
