Title: A simple plane-wave explosive lens

Abstract

A simple plane-wave lens, using an inert central plastic wave shaper, has been designed. An experiment was done with a 4-in. diam, zeroth-order design. An iterative technique that uses measured time deviations to correct the next wave shape was developed. Two identical versions of the first iterated shape were fired. Arrival-time deviations in these first iterates fell within 50-ns bounds. With greater care and further iteration, lenses bound by 10-ns deviations seem possible. 4 refs., 22 figs.
