Laser-Produced Plasmas and Hypervelocity Acceleration.

Pagination or Media Count:
Laser produced plasmas have properties that overlap those of armatures required for hypervelocity particle acceleration. This makes them useful as a test bed for advanced acceleration schemes and effects. In addition, sophisticated diagnostics have been developed for measuring laser produced plasma conditions many of these techniques can be applied or adapted to KEW armature problems.
