Innovative microfluidic technology has enabled massively parallelized and extremely efficient biological and clinical assays. Many biological applications developed and executed with traditional bulk processing techniques have been translated and streamlined through microfluidic processing with the notable exception of sample volume reduction or(More)
We demonstrate the hohlraum radiation temperature and symmetry required for ignition-scale inertial confinement fusion capsule implosions. Cryogenic gas-filled hohlraums with 2.2 mm-diameter capsules are heated with unprecedented laser energies of 1.2 MJ delivered by 192 ultraviolet laser beams on the National Ignition Facility. Laser backscatter(More)
We designed and built a controller for a modulated X-ray source (MXS) that can be used to calibrate X-ray detecting instruments. This source has three adjustable inputs: the voltage supplied to an ultraviolet light-emitting diode (UV LED), a high voltage supplied to an electron multiplier, and a high voltage to accelerate electrons towards an elemental(More)
