  • The National Ignition Facility: Status and Plans

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 25 - 29
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (97 KB)  

    Summary form only given. The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a 192 beam laser facility presently under construction at LLNL. When completed, NIF will produce 1.8 MJ, 500 TW of ultraviolet light making it the world's largest and most powerful laser system. NIF will be the world's preeminent facility for performing experiments for fusion ignition for inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and experim... View full abstract»

  • High Energy Density Physics with Terawatt and Petawatt Class Lasers

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 30 - 45
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (145 KB)  

    Summary form only given. The proliferation of 100-TW class ultrashort pulse lasers and the near completion of a number of petawatt class lasers world wide is opening a wide frontier in laser science. The applications of these lasers now span fields ranging from plasma physics to medicine. One of the new frontiers opened by these lasers is in high energy-density (HED) science. A multi-TW laser can ... View full abstract»

  • State-of-the-Art Electron, Proton, and X-Ray Generators for Medical and Industrial Applications

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 46 - 50
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (97 KB)  

    Summary form only given. Accelerator technology, especially on the size scale appropriate for medical and industrial use, is advancing rapidly. IBA has developed a range of particle (electron and proton) accelerators and X-ray generators to target many of these applications. I will discuss design and configuration of these accelerators and their usage in medical diagnosis and especially in the tre... View full abstract»

  • Double Z-Pinch-Driven Hohlraums: Symmetric ICF Capsule Implosions and Wire-Array Z-Pinch Source Physics

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 51 - 65
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (135 KB)  

    Summary form only given. There continues to be dramatic progress in applying pulsed-power driven wire arrays to research in Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF). The Z facility at Sandia National Laboratories delivers -20 MA to a wire-array z pinch that supersonically implodes the wire-array plasma, and ultimately produces a 100-200 TW X-ray source at stagnation. Wire array X-ray sources appear to be... View full abstract»

  • Advances in Magnetic Fusion Science and the ITER Project

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 66 - 70
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (98 KB)  

    Summary form only given. The last decade has seen dramatic advances in the scientific understanding of magnetically-confined high-temperature plasmas for fusion energy, due to advances in plasma measurement techniques and parallel computing. The understanding of the global stability of plasmas has advanced to the point where detailed measurements of pressure and current allow accurate prediction o... View full abstract»

  • Millimeter Wave Imaging and Visualization of Plasma Waves and Instabilities

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 71 - 85
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (132 KB)  

    Summary form only given. The microwave and millimeter wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum is ideally suited for the determination of plasma parameters such as electron density and temperature as well as more subtle phenomena such as collective waves and instabilities through exploitation of the frequency dependent properties of this dielectric medium. This spectral region is witnessing int... View full abstract»

  • Three-Dimensional, Time-Dependent Model of DC Plasma Torches

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 86 - 90
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (98 KB)  

    Summary form only given. A key aspect of the behavior of non-transferred DC arc plasma torch is the stochastic aspect of arc formation inside the nozzle. This phenomenon results in instabilities in the jet flow that are enhanced by the turbulent mixing with the ambient gas when the plasma jet issues in the quiescent surrounding gas. In addition, the wear of electrodes contributes to make the flow ... View full abstract»

  • Statistical Properties of Broadband ELF Electric Field Fluctuations Associated with Ion Acceleration and Outflow as Observed by the Fast Satellite

    Publication Year: 2005 , Page(s): 93
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (522 KB) |  | HTML iconHTML  

    Summary form only given. Broadband ELF (BBELF) electric field fluctuations are commonly observed in association with ion acceleration and outflow from the terrestrial auroral zone and ionosphere. These fluctuations are the conduit by which energy is transferred from macroscopic field and current systems to the ambient ion populations, and are thus an important part of the mass and energy flow betw...
