COLLOQUIUM: Progress towards fusion on NIF and Z requires new plasma measurement capabilities

Dr. Joe Kilkenny
Dr. Greg Rochau

There is significant progress towards fusion on NIF and Z with alpha particle heating on NIF and modest neutron yields on Z. However future progress requires advances in measurement capabilities. Examples of high speed xray imaging, optical Thomson scattering, neutron imaging, time resolved neutron spectroscopy, time resolved x-ray spectroscopy, and gamma spectroscopy will be described.
