Shocked Foams on OMEGA EP

An experiment to study shocked foams with imaging x-ray Thomson scattering was recently conducted on OMEGA EP. Foams are of interest in many inertial confinement fusion target designs, but have been difficult to simulate.

Shown here: (a) X-ray scattering spectra at different locations along the shock profile (b) The spectrum from the shocked foam is compared to a theoretical spectrum with a temperature of 30 eV.
