Extract

Recent experiments to study the laser driven compression of CH shell targets and the effects of increasing aspect ratio using x-ray shadowgraph techniques are described. This work has been carried out at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory's Central Laser Facility with 12 beam, 0·53 μm, 1·0 ns irradiation. X-ray shadowgraphy techniques have been used with a frame time of ∼100ps and spatial resolution of 5 to lOμm to obtain density profiles for the compressed targets. A systematic study of 150–200 μm targets with aspect ratios from ∼7 to ∼20 has been performed. The x-ray shadowgraphy techniques used are described, results in the form of x-radiographs presented and a discussion of preliminary results given.
