Developing solid-state experiments on the Nova laser

Abstract:

An X-ray drive has been developed to shock compress metal foils in the solid state using an internally shielded hohlraum with a high contrast shaped pulse from the Nova laser. The drive has been characterized, and hydrodynamics experiments designed to study the growth of the Rayleigh-Taylor (R-T) instability in Cu foils at 3 Mbar peak pressures in the plastic how regime have been started. Preimposed modulations with an initial wavelength of 20-50 mu m and amplitudes of 1.0-2.5 mu m show growt...
