Abstract

A NIF core diagnostic instrument has been designed and will be fabricated to record x-ray spectra in the 1.1 to 20.1 keV energy range. The High-Energy Electronic X-Ray (HENEX) instrument has four reflection crystals with overlapping coverage of 1.1 to 10.9 keV and one transmission crystal covering 8.6 to 20.1 keV. The spectral resolving power varies from approximately 2000 at low energies to 300 at 20 keV. The spectrum produced by each crystal is recorded by a modified commercial dental x-ray CCD detector with 4000 dynamic range.
