ABSTRACT
Hydrodynamic processes of radiation-ablated high-Z plasmas have great influence on the x-ray radiation transport both in a high-Z tube with low-Z foam filling and in a low-Z filling indirect drive cavity. Using the intense x-ray radiation to heat a low-Z foam-tamped high-Z gold plate from a half cavity, the hydrodynamic moving process of the x-ray-ablated gold plasma has been studied by an imaging method with Ti He-α line emission as the backlighter source. The hydrodynamic trajectory of the x-ray-heated gold plasma was obtained and the average trajectory velocity of (36.5±1.2) km/s was derived. The experimental trajectory was compared with the simulations using the one-dimensional (1D) RDMG [P. Gu et al., Sci. China, Ser. G 48, 345 (2005)] and two-dimensional (2D) LARED-R [K. Lan et al., Laser Part. Beams 23, 275 (2005)] codes separately. It is shown that the 2D LARED-R code simulated the measured plasma trajectory much better than the 1D RDMG code due to the fact that the lateral x-ray radiation loss was taken into account in the 2D LARED-R but not in the 1D RDMG simulations.
