Title: Measurements of the Effects of the Intensity Pickers on Laser Imprinting for Direct-Drive, Adiabat-Shaping Designs on OMEGA

Abstract

Effects of the intensity pickets on laser imprinting were investigated using laser-driven, planar plastic and foam targets on the OMEGA Laser System. Intensity pickets are used in adiabat-shaping techniques, designed to improve stability of inertial confinement fusion targets. The measurements were performed in planar foam targets using the decaying shock (DS) method of adiabat shaping and in planar plastic targets using the relaxation (RX) method.
