Title: Method for detection of nuclear-plasma interactions in a 134Xe-doped exploding pusher at the National Ignition Facility

Angular momentum changes due to nuclear-plasma interactions on highly-excited nuclei in high energy density plasmas created at the National Ignition Facility can be measured through a change in isomer feeding following gamma emission. Here, we propose an experiment to detect these effects in 133Xe* in exploding pusher capsules.
