26 September 2013 Implementation of a new multiple monochromatic x-ray 2D imager at NIF

We will describe the installation and wavelength calibration of a multiple monochromatic imager [MMI]1 to be used on mix experiments at National Ignition Facility [NIF]2. The imager works between 8 and 13 keV, has a spatial resolution of 16 micrometers and generates many images each with an energy bandwidth of ~80 eV. The images are recorded either on image plates or on gated x-ray detectors. We will describe: how we aligned the instrument on the bench using visible light, how we checked the alignment and determined the energy range using a k-alpha x-ray source, and how we installed and aligned the instrument to the NIF target chamber.
