Technical Paper / Thirteenth Target Fabrication Specialists’ Meeting

A reliable easy to use, transportable pressure measurement device (Fig.1) for assessing the gas fill in spherical ICF targets is needed for LANL experiments at OMEGA. This paper describes the burst system design and the method used to calibrate and operate the system. It also presents the first test results.
