The performance of a targets designed for the National Ignition Facility ~NIF! are simulated in three dimensions using the HYDRA multiphysics radiation hydrodynamics code. @M. Marinak et al., Phys. Plasmas 5, 1125 ~1998!# In simulations of a cylindrical NIF hohlraum that include an imploding capsule, all relevant hohlraum features and the detailed laser(More)
The effects of laser-plasma interactions (LPI) on the dynamics of inertial confinement fusion hohlraums are investigated via a new approach that self-consistently couples reduced LPI models into radiation-hydrodynamics numerical codes. The interplay between hydrodynamics and LPI-specifically stimulated Raman scatter and crossed-beam energy transfer(More)
