Abstract: UP8.00116 : Differential hard x-ray imaging of HED/ICF plasmas using Compton scattering*
Preview Abstract Abstract
Tunable, narrow-bandwidth, picosecond x-ray pulses can be produced via Compton scattering. Such pulses can be used for high-contrast K-edge imaging of specific ions in a plasma. In addition, the K-edge shift due to ionization and screening could also be studied using such x-rays. Details of a Compton scattering x-ray source will be presented, along with methods for spectral resolution and imaging, and information retrieval of the ion states and plasma conditions.
