Testing of optical diagnostics for ion-beam-driven WDM experiments at NDCX-1
Elsevier B. V.
We report on the testing of optical diagnostics developed for warm-dense-matter (WDM) experiments on the neutralized drift compression experiments (NDCX-1) at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The diagnostics consists of a fast optical pyrometer, a streak camera spectrometer, and a Doppler-shift laser interferometer (VISAR). While the NDCX is in the last stage of commissioning for the target experiments, the diagnostics were tested elsewhere in an experiment where an intense laser pulse was used to generate the WDM state in metallic and carbon samples.
