Radiation confinement in X-ray-heated cavities
The confinement of high-temperature thermal radiation in X-ray-heated cavities was studied by relative measurements of the radiation temperature in "closed" and "open" cavities, simultaneously heated by X-rays generated in a common laser-heated cavity. The experimental observations provided direct evidence of radiation enhancement due to radiation confinement. A simple model based on the theory of the radiatively-driven heat wave was developed. The predictions of the model are in good agreement with the experimental results.
