The K-shell radiation emitted by the argon seeded in the DT fuel of a CO2 Laser driven microballoon implosion is modeled by post processing the results of a hydrodynamic LANL calculation. The entire K-shell spectrum is self-consistently calculated including transport of both lines and continua, collisional-radiative equilibrium CRE number densities, Stark profiles for the first four resonance lines of Ar XVII and XVIII, and Voigt profiles for the remaining lines. The CRE ionic number densities are presented and compared to the corresponding Average Atom quantities calculated by LASNEX. Author
