Title: Advancing the capability of the gated laser-entrance-hole imager on the National Ignition Facility

Abstract

A new configuration based on the recent off-line calibrations of the gated laser entrance hole diagnostic on the National Ignition Facility provides 4-8 interleaved frames per experiment using the standard two frame sensor settings. Since its implementation, the new design has greatly increased the data return for hundreds of experiments at the National Ignition Facility. The large quantity of images from a variety of physics campaigns has revealed information on plasma evolution in hohlraums.
