Efficient multi-keV x-ray sources from Ti-doped aerogel targets

Abstract:

We have measured the production of by 4.7 keV x-rays from low-density Ti-doped aerogel (rho approximate to 3 mg/cc) targets at the OMEGA laser facility (University of Rochester), with the goal of maximizing x-ray output. Forty OMEGA beams (lambda(L) = 0.351 mum) illuminated the two cylindrical faces of the target with a total power that ranged from 7 to 14 TW. The laser fully ionizes the target (n(e)/n(crit) less than or equal to 0.1), and a laser-bleaching wave excites, supersonically, the h...
