X-RAY CONFINEMENT IN A LASER HEATED CAVITY
The confinement of thermal x-ray radiation in 0.6-2 mm diameter. gold cavities heated by 3 kJ/300 ps/0.53 mum laser pulses from the Gekko-XII laser has been investigated. A radiant energy flux corresponding to a brightness temperature of 192 eV was achieved with one- to two-fold re-emission of the x-rays generated at the wall of the cavity. It is concluded that a higher temperature can be attained with shorter wavelength laser.
