Abstract:

This report describes an investigation into the dynamics and radiation of laser heated plasmas. Part 1 is devoted to the description of a rate equation code which calculates the ionization buildup and radiation from a sample of material into which energy is deposited at a specified rate. In part 2 the development and applications of a 1-D hydro and radiation code is described. This is a multi-region code which calculates the laser propagation and energy deposition, heating, hydrodynamics and radiation from a laser heated pellet.
