6 May 1985 Elliptical X-ray analyzer spectrograph application to a laser-produced plasma
Author Affiliations +
A preliminary experimental study was conducted on the application of an elliptical analyzer spectrograph to X-ray diagnostics of pulsed plasmas. This spectrograph was designed to record a range of 100-2000 eV X-rays on calibrated Kodak RAR-21497 film. Using point calibrations and theoretical models, the spectrograph efficiency was predicted. Basic spectrograph geometry and photographic calibrations are presented in companion papers. A 20 J, 6 ns duration Nd:glass laser pulse was focussed upon planar targets of gold, aluminum, teflon and boron carbide. Sample spectra for line and X-ray yields analysis are presented.
