The knowledge of the properties of atoms in high-temperature/density plasmas is of deep interest in many fields of physics. Theoretical studies and interpretation of the inertial confinement fusion experiments is one of the examples. On the basis of the density functional formalism, a model of matter at extreme conditions is presented. Application of the model is illustrated by examples of average ionization state and equation of state calculations.
Interactions of sub-nanosecond pulses of kJ-class iodine laser
“PALS” with low-density foams and acceleration of Al foils by
the pressure of the heated foam matter are investigated here, both
experimentally and theoretically. X-ray streak camera is used for
evaluation of the speed of energy transfer through the porous foam
material. The shock-wave arrival on the rear side of the target is
monitored by optical streak camera. Accelerated foil velocities, measured
by three-frame optical interferometers, and shadowgraphs, reach up to
107 cm/s. The accelerated foil shape is smooth without any
signature of small-scale structures present in the incident laser beam.
Conversion efficiencies as high as 14% of the laser energy into the
kinetic energy of Al foil are derived. Experimental results compare well
with our two-dimensional hydrodynamics simulations and with an approximate
