1 Hydrodynamic and Symmetry Safety Factors of Hiper’s targets 35 th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics Hersonissos, Crete, 9-13 june, 2008 L. Hallo, M. Olazabal-Loume, V. Drean, X. Ribeyre, G. Schurtz J.-L. Feugeas, J. Breil, Ph. Nicolai, P.-H. Maire

2 HIPER specifications : 300 kJ on target – 6 kJ / beam – 50 3  At 3  : 50 beams x 15 kJ per beam at the output of the amplifier section x 50 % : conversion at 3  (70% at 2  ) 2 x 80 % : transmission 300 kJ 70 kJ 10 ps PW 300 kJ 50 beams 5 ns, 2  -3  2 1/e a m=1 m=2 m=3 m=4 Numb. laser beams and focusing section are « Free » parameters Optimisation is required

3 CECLAD illumination code, J.-L. Feugeas et al, HiPer Workshop, Lisboa A 48 beams configuration is a good candidate The 48 beams configuration gives sensible : - intensity on the cone : max of intensity 26 % - intensity in the cone : max of intensity 2 % Other configurations lead to higher intensity on/in the cone.

4 Legendre analysis of an “optimized” 48 beams configuration (CECLAD) Low l-modes non-uniformity appear l=12, 8 and 10 –modes are dominant Full spectrum illumination The 48 beams yield : 1) rms 0.15 % 2) energy ratio : 94% Consequences of hydrodynamic instabilities on energy gain ?

10 2D multi- and monomode hydrodynamic simulations (CHIC)

11 11 11 ns 10.4 ns 10.6 ns 10.8 ns Mode 12 analysis with the code CHIC (i) 11 ns 2a  R≈10  m, R ≈ 150  m → l  R/R ≈7.5 Feedthrough negligeable

12 Mode 12 analysis with the code CHIC (ii) - Perturbation growth remains linear - Small energy mode redistribution after free fly phase

13 Mode analysis CHIC v.s. reduced model (iii)  - Reduced model is in agreement with 2D CHIC simulations - Mode 12 will dominate in spectrum analysis

14 Initial perturbation: laser imprint Laser imprinting model (Goncharov et al. Phys. Plasma 2000) - Good initial guess for Ablative Rayleigh-Taylor model - Depends only on 1D flow (L 0,, V c, V bo …)

15 Self-consistent perturbation growth - Dominant mode l=12, I/I 0 =5x10 -3, ~ a 0 =5x10 -6 (12/l) 1-1/2 - ART Kull-Betti (Reduced model) a/a 0 =18 - Convergence effect (Bell-Plesset) a 1 /a 0 =R foc /R ff =7.2 Model final amplitude 6.5 microns 11 ns (Richtmyer-Meshkov phase is neglected in the present work) 2 a=12  m CHIC

16 Mode12, perturbations influence on density Consequence: Self-consistent model post-treatment is in agreement with CHIC’s maximum perturbed density

17 Consequence on gain target (Atzeni’s design) Hypothesis: - 1D target design enables combustion - Burn fraction is expressed by f=  R/(  R+7) Application on Atzeni’s design -1D f 1D =0.176, Gain prop. to f -Optimised 48 beams target f op = Si hd =f op /f 1D =0.83 The 48 optimised beams (rms 0.15 %, energy ratio 94%) has 83 % of the 1D energy gain
