Title Density measurements of shock compressed matter using short pulse laser diagnostics
Abstract In this paper, experimental results on X-ray and proton radiography of shock compressed matter are presented. It has been performed at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) using three long pulse beams to generate a shock wave in a multi-layer foil and a short pulse beam to create either an X-ray or protons source for a transverse radiography. Depending on the probe material (aluminium or carbon foam) a Molybdenum K alpha source or a proton beam are used. Density data of the shocked aluminium, in the multimagabar regime are presented.
