Measurements of the Conduction-Zone Length and Mass Ablation Rate in Cryogenic Direct-Drive Implosions on OMEGA.

Abstract

Measurements of the conduction-zone length (110±20  μm at t=2.8  ns), the averaged mass ablation rate of the deuterated plastic (7.95±0.3  μg/ns), shell trajectory, and laser absorption are made in direct-drive cryogenic implosions and are used to quantify the electron thermal transport through the conduction zone. Hydrodynamic simulations that use nonlocal… (More)
