Monday, October 29, 4: The mass ablated per shot then scales as the stored electrical energy, in agreement with experiments over a wide range of operations. The effect of Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities upon the peak density achieved is evaluated using the resistive magneto-hydrodynamics code Gorgon for a maximum current of 25 MA.

The current pulse on the 1 MA, ns COBRA generator is comparable to the early stages of the current pulse on the Z pullsing, and studies in the low current regime may highlight details of ,ach2 liner initiation pertinent to the MagLIF fusion scheme [1]. Design of the proper power system for an improved ablation-fed pulsed plasma microthruster PPT requires the ability to specify amplitudes, risetimes, waveforms and pulsetimes pulsijg relation to propellant properties and thrust chamber dimensions.

We present optical emission data from aluminum liners using gated imaging and streak photography, which show a mqch2 of onset of emission with the size of a small power-feed gap introduced at the cathode.

AU – Mikellides, Pavlos PY – Y1 – N2 – Design of the proper power system for an improved ablation-fed pulsed plasma microthruster PPT requires the ability to specify amplitudes, risetimes, waveforms and pulsetimes in relation to propellant properties and thrust chamber dimensions. In addition, simulations have indicated that if the initiation points on the inner edge of the cathode are set too closely, filaments of current will collide chaotically, rather than emerging as isolated and identical structures, also impairing symmetrical compression.

Extreme degree of ionization in micro-capillary plasma columns heated by ultrafast current pulses Jorge Rocca, Jing Li, Gonzalo Avaria, Michael Grisham, Fernando Tomasel, Vyacheslav Shlyaptsev The efficient generation of dense large-scale plasma columns with very high degree of ionization and high homogeneity can enable fundamental plasma studies and a variety of promising applications. This in turn allows a study of the response of the liner to the current pulse. The American Physical Society APS is a non-profit membership organization working to advance the knowledge of physics.

The influence of the mass of deuterium shells on neutron emission times, neutron yields and neutron spectra was studied. The results show that impurity doping strongly reduces the shell-density mqch2 and the instability growth rate.

Ultimate results in a 2J portable PF device as non radioactive neutron source for field applications are presented. The experimental data show the hydrodynamic evolution of the target and MG-level magnetic fields generated in the broken foil.

Therefore, isentropic liner implosions are a promising technique for recreating the conditions present in the interiors of gas giants. We demonstrate the generation of dense large-aspect-ratio plasmas columns with extremely high degree of ionization in micro-capillary channels heated by ultrafast discharge current pulses. The RT instability growth rate in doped targets is reduced by a factor of 1. Stationary operation in the limit of high magnetic Reynolds number may be characterized by a discharge thickness adjacent to the surface that scales inversely with the exhaust speed, resulting in a resistance that is approximately constant for fixed surface proportions and material.

We show how the current pulse can be shaped in order to isentropically compress the DT ice layer. These data will be compared to magneto-hydrodynamic simulations. Using this beam we can directly measure the gradients and demonstrate acceleration of an injected ion beam for the first time. This maximises the compression of the DT ice layer, and increases rho-r at stagnation.

By doing so, we keep the fuel at low temperature. The obtained pulse shape enables us to simulate a cylindrically convergent ramp wave, which quasi-isentropically compresses the Deuterium fill to densities much higher than achievable by using a standard pulse.
