Abstract:

Previous calculations of the total integrated bremsstrahlung radiation passing through absorbing foils of beryllium, aluminum, and nickel as well as aluminum and nickel in combination with carbon polyethylene are included and extended to cover temperatures equivalent to an energy range from 50 eV to 100 keV and to include gold. Such information is necessary in obtaining values for the electron temperature in a plasma from measurements of the soft x-ray continuum emission. The spectral distribution of the transmitted continuum radiation is presented over the entire temperature range, for use in determining the most suitable spectral region. Author
