Abstract

As part of the Dual Axis Radiography Hydrotest Facility, Phase II (DARHT II) Multipulse Bremsstrahlung Target effort, we have been performing an investigation of (1) the possible adverse effects of backstreaming ion emission from the Bremsstrahlung converter target and (2) the hydrodynamic behavior of the target after the electron beam interaction. Theory predictions show that the first effect would primarily be manifested in the static focusing system as a rapidly varying x-ray spot. From experiments performed on ETA-II, we have shown that the first effect is not strongly present when the beam initially interacts with the target. Electron beam pulses delivered to the target after formation of a plasma are strongly affected, however. Secondly, we have performed measurements of the time varying target density after disassembly was initiated by the electron beam. The measurements presented show that the target density as a function of time compares favorably with our LASNEX models.
