Title Density profile measurements of non-cylindrical pulsed gas jets
Abstract This report describes the experiment carried out at the Central Laser Facility from 10-23 February 1997. We have fully characterised the three-dimensional density profile of non-cylindrical and cylindrical high-density pulsed gas jets by using a double orthogonal Mach-Zehnder interferometer and SART methods for inversion. The axial gas density decreases exponentially with the distance, z, from the nozzle tip with a scale length of approximately 1.4mm and varies very little with time. With rectangular gas jets we obtain similar densities as those produced by cylindrical nozzles, but persisting for much longer lengths. Colliding two rectangular nozzles allows for even greater densities, without increasing the backing pressure.
