Abstract

The present paper presents experimental results of the transverse and longitudinal phase volume for the expanding multicharged ions in laser produced plasma, created by focusing a CO2-laser (beam) onto a Pb207 target. The total number of Pb207 ions (with Z = 1 or 2 and Z = 6), the ion current duration and amplitude at a distance of 1 m from the laser target within 10−2 steradians are determined. The measured experimental parameters of the laser heavy ion source are compared with the driver requirement for the heavy ion inertial fusion (HIIF) programme.

The phenomena observed in the experiment confirm the results of numerical calculations using a two temperature hydrodynamic programme.
