Abstract

High-resolution x-ray imaging diagnostics play a crucial role in fundamental research, such as inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and high-energy density physics (HEDP). Plasma signals are typically characterized by small scales, rapid evolution, and spectral complexity. These characteristics make it essential to develop x-ray diagnostics optics with high spatial resolution, collection efficiency, and spectral resolution. These requirements can be met using a combination of a high-resolution multi-channel Kirkpatrick–Baez (KB) microscope with spectrum-resolved multilayers and a time-resolved framing camera. This study describes the optical and multilayer design of a dual-energy sixteen-channel KB microscope. The calibrated results of online and offline imaging are shown. By utilizing a dual-energy multi-channel KB microscope, high-resolution backlighting and self-emission x-ray imaging can be realized and detailed information related to plasma density and temperature can be simultaneously obtained.
