Abstract:

The dominant physics affecting spherical and cylindrical plasma implosions is studied. Detailed modeling of opacity sources, line and continuum emission, and coupled hydrodynamics is presented. Simulations of actual experimental spectra, plasma mixture experiments, and improved photon transport methods are described. Z-pinch code benchmarks, and output predictions for various elements and mass loads are given.Author
