The Diagnostic Development Group at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics has endeavored to build a stand-alone, remotely operated streak camera with comprehensive autofocus and self-calibration capability. Designated as the Rochester Optical Streak System (ROSS), it is a generic streak camera platform, capable of accepting a variety of streak tubes. The(More)
Target areal density (rhoR) asymmetries in OMEGA direct-drive spherical implosions are studied. The rms variation <deltarhoR>/<rhoR> for low-mode-number structure is approximately proportional to the rms variation of on-target laser intensity <deltaI>/<I> with an amplification factor of approximately 1/2(C(r)-1), where C(r) is the capsule convergence ratio.(More)
