Abstract: A dynamic hohlraum is produced by imploding an array or arrays of high atomic number wires onto a cylindrical hydrocarbon foam. The radiation field produced by this source is one of the closest laboratory realizations of a blackbody in the soft x-ray region of the spectrum. Dynamic hohlraums can be employed for fundamental radiation transport studies as well as for inertial confinement fusion experiments using indirect drive. The nature of the radiation field produced by this source depends critically on the …
