One- (1D) and two-dimensional (2D) x-ray imaging techniques with x-ray streak cameras have been developed and utilized for investigating implosion dynamics of laser fusion targets. Conventional streaked 1D images of the shell motion of the imploding target was recorded together with the time-resolved 2D multi-imaging x-ray streak images of the core shapes on the same x-ray streak camera. Precise comparison of the core dynamics between the experimental and simulation results was performed with an accuracy of 30 ps by fitting the trajectories of the x-ray emission from the imploding shell. © 1997 American Institute of Physics.
