X-ray imaging is one essential tool for capturing phenomena that occur when high-irradiance lasers interact with complex, optically thick targets. We use x-ray backlighting and emission to measure the result of such interactions at experiments on the Omega laser and the Z-machine z-pinch facilities. In this presentation, we will show some of the images collected with a variety of experiments, we will discuss some of the difficulties we overcame, and look to issues that will arise with higher-energy lasers and larger objects.
