80. Effects of Ion Diffusion on Fusion Burn at the Shock Flash in Inertial-Confinement Fusion Implosions

Understanding the physics responsible to the disagreement between experimental results and numerical simulations are of fundamental importance to inertial-confinement fusion (ICF) implosions, and particularly to the ignition-scale layered implosions currently taking place at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The plasma kinetic effects, which have been overlooked in the conventional...

A series of experiments were carried out to evaluate energy coupling efficiency from a heating laser to a fuel core in the fast-ignition scheme of laser-driven inertial confinement fusion. Here we break down the efficiency, which is governed by enormous interactions and instabilities among intense laser, high-energy-density plasma, and relativistic electron beam (REB), into three measurable...

Recent experiments [1,2] and modeling [3,4] have shown that the large-scale preplasma significantly affects the laser-plasma interaction (LPI) dynamics and the resultant fast electron energy distribution, where the fast electron energies are much higher than the ones predicted by ponderomotive scaling due to additional stochastic acceleration in the low density region. We have carried out...

A central feature of an inertial fusion energy (IFE) power plant is a target that must be delivered to the target chamber center at a rate of about 1–15 Hz. A high rep-rate target supply system, which operates with moving free-standing targets (FST) is the culmination of a 25-year science-&-technology effort of the Lebedev Physical Institute (LPI) in collaboration with other Russian...
689. A High-Energy and Highly Repetitive fs/ps Laser Using Optical Parametric Chirped-Pulse Amplification with a ns Beam Combined Pumping Laser for Fast Ignition
Mr Hong Jin Kong (Republic of Korea)
10/16/14, 9:50 AM
The authors propose the high-energy and high repetitive fs/ps laser system which uses the output beam of a coherent beam combination laser using stimulated Brillouin scattering phase conjugate mirrors (SBS-PCMs) as the pump beam of optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA). To verify the feasibility of the OPCPA system, the authors will utilize 4 kW(4 x 0.1 J @10 kHz/10 ns)...
