2D numerical study of the radiation influence on shock structure relevant to laboratory astrophysics
Context. Radiative shocks are found in various astrophysical objects and particularly at different stages of stellar evolution. Studying radiative shocks, their topology, and thermodynamical
Experimental study of radiative shocks at PALS facility
We report on the investigation of strong radiative shocks generated with the high energy, sub-nanosecond iodine laser at PALS. These shock waves are characterized by a developed radiative precursor
Astrophysical radiative shocks: From modeling to laboratory experiments
Radiative shock waves are observed around astronomical objects in a wide variety of environments, for example, they herald the birth of stars and sometimes their death. Such shocks can also be
Experimental and numerical studies of radiative shocks
This paper deals with radiative shocks from both theoretical and experimental viewpoints. First, experimental results obtained at Laboratoire d'Utilisation des Lasers Intenses (LULI) at high (E ∼ 400
Microscopic properties of xenon plasmas for density and temperature regimes of laboratory astrophysics experiments on radiative shocks.
This work has analyzed a radiative shock that propagated in xenon generated in an experiment carried out at the Prague Asterix Laser System and addressed the effect of plasma self-absorption in the radiative precursor, the influence of the radiation emitted from the shocked shell and the plasmaself-emission in the radiatorative precursor.
Observation of collapsing radiative shocks in laboratory experiments
This article reports the observation of the dense, collapsed layer produced by a radiative shock in a laboratory experiment. The experiment uses laser irradiation to accelerate a thin layer of
New probing techniques of radiative shocks
Modeling multidimensional effects in the propagation of radiative shocks
Radiative shocks (also called supercritical shocks) are high Mach number shock waves that photoionize the medium ahead of the shock front and give rise to a radiative precursor. They are generated in
