Abstract A novel X-ray backlight imaging system has been developed to obtain diagnostic information about implosion targets, wire-array Z-pinch implosions and ablative Rayleigh–Taylor instability. The key component of the imaging system is the spherically bent quartz (1 0 1 0) crystal with a curvature radius of 143 mm. The imaging system is capable of the two-dimensional, spatially resolved, monochromatic backlight imaging. A monochromatic X-ray backlight imaging experiment using the imaging… CONTINUE READING
