Magnetic control of the plasma flows in laser targets

  • S.Yu. Gus'kov (a1), V.B. Rozanov (a1) and T. Pisarczyk (a2)


The idea of controlling the plasma flows in laser targets by action of a strong external magnetic field (H ≥ 1 MG) is presented. The magnetic control of plasma flows for the keeping of a transparency of entrance holes of indirect-compression targets and other type targets operating at an introduction of the laser beams into the interior of the target is suggested. It is shown that the magnetic field, transverse versus the direction of the propagation of the plasma flow with an intensity of 2–4 MG, causes a decrease (1.5–3 times) of the closing speed of holes for the laser beam introduction into the hohlraum target.
