The experiments measuring the density of DT mixture
compressed in indirect drive targets (X-ray targets) were
conducted on the ISKRA-5 facility. The density was determined
from the line broadening of H- and He-like Ar doped in
DT-gas as a diagnostic substance. A series of three experiments
with the X-ray targets having different shell thickness
of capsule filled with DT + Ar mixture were carried out.
In two of the three experiments, radiation spectra of Ar
were recorded and the density of compressed gas was determined.
The analysis of the experimental results for the X-ray
target with a 280-μm diameter and a 7 μm wall thickness
revealed that the density of the compressed gas may be
estimated as ∼1 g/cm3.
