Abstract:

The line mass and implosion energy inferred from the PRS implosion time and load current depend on the shapes of gas-puff radial-density and current-history profiles. Snowplow calculations with various density and current profiles are used to determine the dependence of these quantities on the profile shapes. Our results demonstrate the importance of using accurate experimental density and current profiles with radiation-scaling analyses.
