Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique, DAM, CESTA, BP. 2, 33114 Le Barp, France
The Laser Integration Line located at CEA-CESTA is equipped with X-ray plasma diagnostics using different kinds of X-ray components such as filters, mirrors, crystals, detectors and cameras. To guarantee LIL measurements, detectors such as X-ray cameras must be regularly calibrated close to the facility. A new X-ray facility is currently available to perform these absolute X-ray calibrations. This paper presents the X-ray tube based High Energy X-ray Source (HEXS) mainly used to calibrate X-ray cameras and also X-ray filters of plasma diagnostics.
