ABSTRACT
Streaked x-ray radiography images of annular patterns in an evolving tantalum oxide foam under the influence of a driven, subsonic radiation wave were obtained on the National Ignition Facility. This is the first successful radiography measurement of the evolution of well-defined foam features under a driven, subsonic wave in the diffusive regime. A continuous record of the evolution was recorded on an x-ray streak camera, using a slot-apertured point-projection backlighter with an 8 ns nickel source (7.9 keV). Radiography images were obtained for four different annular patterns, which were corrected using a source-dependent flat-field image. The evolution of the foam features was well-modeled using the 3D KULL radiation hydrodynamics code. This experimental and modeling platform can be modified for scaled high-energy-density laboratory astrophysics experiments.

    We present a new method of incorporating radiative transfer into Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). There have been many recent attempts at radiative transfer in SPH [10, 11, 5, 13], however these are becoming increasingly complex, with some methods requiring the photosphere to be mapped...

    A double-pulse laser drive is used to create episodic supersonic plasma jets that propagate into a low density ambient medium. These are among the first laser experiments to generate pulsed outflow. The temporal laser-intensity profile consists of two 1-ns square pulses separated by 9.6 ns. The...
