OMEGA experiments: X-ray spectral diagnostics of
: To study the effects of ablator dopants on the radiation-
hydrodynamics of the ablation and capsule implosion; and
To develop a technique for diagnosing the instantaneous
properties at a location in the
of a solid sample.
Specifically, we want to measure the time at which the
radiation wave reaches a specific depth in the ablator as a
function of dopant level.
