When the hohlraum radiation reaches the depth of the salt tracers in the planar ablator patches on our hohlraums, we expect to see a sudden “turn-on” of Ka absorption lines from high ionization stages of the chlorine. The delay in this turn-on time betw
Furthermore, the actual distribution of ionization stages at any given time reflects the temperature at the depth of the tracer.
Using this information, we can optimize the design of capsule ablators in order to most efficiently ignite a fusion reaction.
