Laser Imprint Reduction with a Short Shaping Laser Pulse Incident Upon a Foam-Plastic Target( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the previous work [Metzler et al., Phys. Plasmas 6, 3283 "1999"] it was shown that a tailored density profile could be very effective in smoothing out the laser beam non-uniformities imprinted into a laser-accelerated target. However, a target with a smoothly graded density is difficult to manufacture. A method of dynamically producing a graded density profile with a short shaping laser pulse irradiating a foam layer on top of the payload prior to the drive pulse is proposed. It is demonstrated that the intensity and the duration of the shaping pulse, the time interval between the shaping pulse and the drive pulse, and the density ratio between the foam and the payload can be selected so that the laser imprint of the drive pulse is considerably suppressed without increasing the entropy of the payload. The use of the foam-plastic target and a shaping pulse reduces the imprinted mass perturbation amplitude by more than an order of magnitude compared to a solid plastic target. The requirements to the smoothing of the drive and shaping laser beams and to the surface finish of the foam-plastic sandwich target are discussed

We propose a novel use of laser induced breakdown channels to establish a transmission line through air, which terminates at a distant load object
Direct-Drive Laser Target Designs for Sub-MegaJoule Energies( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New direct-drive laser target designs with KrF laser light take advantage of the shorter wavelength to lower the laser energy required for substantial gain (>30x) to sub-MJ level. These low laser-energy pellets are useful in systems that could form an intermediate step towards fusion energy, such as the proposed Fusion Test Facility [S.P. Obenschain, et al, Phys. Plasmas 13, 056320 (2006)]. The short wavelength laser should allow higher intensity (and higher pressure) without increasing the risk of laser-plasma instabilities. The higher pressure in turn allows higher velocities to be achieved while keeping the low aspect ratios required for hydrodynamic stability. The canonical laser energy has been chosen to be 500 kJ. A target design is presented with various laser pulse shapes and both 1D and 2D simulation results are shown. The sensitivity of these targets to both low-mode and high-mode perturbations is examined. The analysis and simulations in this paper indicate that significant gain (G=57) can be achieved for these targets even in the presence of hydrodynamic instabilities
