Title: Development of a krypton-doped gas symmetry capsule platform for x-ray spectroscopy of implosion cores on the NIF

Abstract

The electron temperature at stagnation of an ICF implosion can be measured from the emission spectrum of high-energy x-rays that pass through the cold material surrounding the hot stagnating core. We describe a platform developed on the National Ignition Facility where trace levels of a mid-Z dopant (krypton) are added to the fuel gas of a symcap (symmetry surrogate) implosion to allow for the use of x-ray spectroscopy of the krypton line emission.Published by AIP Publishing
