Abstract

Laboratory (laser and Z-pinch) opacity measurements of well-characterized plasmas provide data to assist inertial confinement fusion, astrophysics and atomic-physics research. In order to test the atomic-physics codes devoted to the calculation of radiative properties of hot plasmas, such experiments must fulfill a number of requirements. In this work, we discuss some sources of uncertainty in absorption-spectroscopy experiments, concerning areal mass, background emission, intensity of the backlighter and self-emission of the plasma. We also study the impact of spatial non-uniformities of the sample.
