Title: A platform for x-ray absorption fine structure study of dynamically compressed materials above 1 Mbar [A platform for XAFS study of dynamically compressed materials above 1 Mbar]

Abstract

Here, a platform consisting of a multi-shock drive and an implosion backlighter has been developed for x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) measurements on materials compressed to multi-Mbar pressures. The experimental setup, target design, and backlighter characteristics are presented. Extended XAFS (EXAFS) measurements for various materials have been demonstrated. A quintuple-crystal design is described to enhance the efficiency of the x-ray spectrometer, enabling observation of very weak EXAFS signals in a single shot.
