Department Description:

The Radiation and Fusion Diagnostics Department \(1676\) researches, develops and fields state\-of\-the\-art diagnostic systems for measuring conditions created in high energy density science experiments on the Z Machine\. The department is composed of a multidisciplinary team of scientists and technologists that work together in a collaborative environment to develop and field temporally\-, spatially\-, and/or spectrally\-resolving diagnostics with an emphasis on instruments that measure X\-ray and Neutron emission\. These measurements can have nanosecond to 100 picosecond time scales and tens of microns of spatial resolution\. The departments activities include fielding of activation samples for measuring neutron yield, neutron time\-of\-flight for inferring ion temperature in fusion plasmas, X\-ray fluence measurements to characterize X\-ray outputs, and soft and warm X\-ray imaging and spectroscopy to characterize source performance\. In addition, calibration and characterization of detector and critical diagnostic component \(e\.g\., crystal, filter, slit, pinhole, and PMT\) responses and pursuing new diagnostic development such as neutron imaging, fusion burn history, and high\-resolution time\-gated X\-ray imaging is also core to the departments mission\.
