High‐speed gated x‐ray imaging for ICF target experiments (invited)
We describe the use of gated microchannel‐plate detectors as high‐speed framing cameras in laser‐driven inertial‐confinement‐fusion experiments. Using an array of pinholes to image the target,Expand

Development and characterization of a pair of 30–40 ps x‐ray framing cameras
We have constructed two slightly different high‐speed framing cameras for use on NOVA and the OMEGA Upgrade. Both units are based on the gating of a microchannel plate, with one detector having aExpand

Symmetry tuning for ignition capsules via the symcap techniquea)
Symmetry of an implosion is crucial to get ignition successfully. Several methods of control and measurement of symmetry have been applied on many laser systems with mm size hohlraums and ns pulses.Expand

Hot-spot mix in ignition-scale implosions on the NIF
Ignition of an inertial confinement fusion (ICF) target depends on the formation of a central hot spot with sufficient temperature and areal density. Radiative and conductive losses from the hot spotExpand
