Discusses the development of a powerful, compact, and repetitive flash x-ray system based on a cable transformer technology powered by ceramic capacitors in a Blumlein-like configuration. Achievement of open circuit voltages in excess of 100 kV while commutation occurs at low voltage; X-ray emission from a low impedance x-ray diode with a hollow cathode configuration.

    In an indirectly driven implosion, non-radial translational motion of the compressed fusion capsule is a signature of residual kinetic energy not coupled into the compressional heating of the target. A reduction in compression reduces the peak pressure and nuclear performance of the implosion....
