The principal result of this study is the production of 150-200 joules of X-rays with Battelles 12-beam neodymium-doped-glass laser. The X-rays were produced by focusing twelve 110-joule, 3-12 nanosecond laser pulses onto separate points of a copper slab target. Time-dependent measurements of the X-ray output were made with a scintillator and an image converter streak camera. The shape of the X-ray pulse was found to closely follow the laser intensity for pulsewidth between 1-12 to 3-12 nanoseconds, which was the range of pulsewidths studied.
