Inside the Dual Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test Facility

The Dual Axis Radiographic Hydrodynamic Test (DARHT) facility at Los Alamos National Laboratory is an essential scientific tool that supports stockpile stewardship at the laboratory. The world's most powerful X-ray machine is used to take high-speed images of mock nuclear devices - data that is used to confirm and modify advanced computer codes in assuring the safety, security, and effectiveness of U.S. nuclear deterrent.
