Title: Observation of hohlraum-wall motion with spectrally selective x-ray imaging at the National Ignition Facility

Abstract

The high fuel capsule compression required for indirect drive inertial confinement fusion (ICF) requires careful control of the X-raydrive symmetry throughout the laser pulse. When the outer cone beams strike the hohlraum wall, the plasma ablated off the hohlraum wall expands into the hohlraum and can alter both the outer and inner cone beam propagation and hencethe X-raydrive symmetry especially at thefinal stage of the drive pulse. In order to quantitatively understand the wall motion, we developed a new experimental technique which visualizes the expansion and stagnation of the hohlraum wall plasma. Finally, we discuss details of the experiment and the technique of spectrally selectivex-ray imaging.
