Abstract

A simple method for reconstructing spherically symmetric objects from slit-imaged emission was recently described by Vest and Steel. Although this method is valid for infinitesimal slit widths and practically noise-free irradiance data, it is shown here that its validity does not extend to slits of practical width in the laser-fusion program. However, a method is given for reducing the Vest–Steel plots with practical apertures to obtain information on core diameter, shell diameter, and shell thickness.
