Study on electron emission by a spherical object: dynamics of trapped particles
In this paper, the dynamics of electrons emitted by a spherical object when the total charge of the system is constant is studied in detail. In particular, the condition for which the total electron
Ion acceleration in electrostatic collisionless shock:on the optimal density profile for quasi-monoenergetic beams
A numerical study on ion acceleration in electrostatic shock waves is presented, with the aim of determining the best plasma configuration to achieve quasi-monoenergetic ion beams in laser-driven
Study on Coulomb explosion induced by laser-matter interaction and application to ion acceleration
Recent studies on laser-matter interaction have been demonstrated the possibility to expel all the electrons, leaving an ion cloud which can expand due to the Coulomb explosion phenomenon. In order

One‐Dimensional Plasma Model at Thermodynamic Equilibrium
The one‐dimensional motion of a number of plane charged sheets is followed with an electronic computer. The energy in the electric field is computed for cases where the number of particles in a Debye
A detailed study of collisionless explosion of single- and two-ion-species spherical nanoplasmas
The collisionless adiabatic expansion into vacuum of spherical plasma targets (clusters) composed of cold single- or multispecies ions and hot electrons is studied kinetically by numerical solving of
Kinetics of the collisionless expansion of spherical nanoplasmas.
The collisionless expansion of spherical plasmas composed of cold ions and hot electrons is analyzed using a novel kinetic model, with special emphasis on the influence of the electron dynamics.
On the applicability of the standard kinetic theory to the study of nanoplasmas
Kinetic theory applies to systems with a large number of particles, while nanoplasma generated by the interaction of ultra–short laser pulses with atomic clusters are systems composed by a relatively
One‐Dimensional Plasma Model
A one‐dimensional plasma model consisting of a large number of identical charge sheets embedded in a uniform fixed neutralizing background is investigated by following the sheet motions on a
Study on Coulomb explosions of ion mixtures
The paper presents a theoretical work on the dynamics of Coulomb explosion for spherical nanoplasmas composed by two different ion species. Particular attention has been dedicated to study the energy
Ergodic model for the expansion of spherical nanoplasmas.
A comparison among different kinetic models for the expansion of spherical nanoplasmas is presented, showing that the ergodic model provides a simplified description, which retains the essential information on the electron distribution, in particular, the energy spectrum.
Dynamics and control of shock shells in the coulomb explosion of very large deuterium clusters.
A technique to induce the formation of large shock shells inside a single cluster, increasing the probability of intracluster nuclear reactions, is proposed and demonstrated.
