Collisionless interaction of an energetic laser produced plasma with a large magnetoplasma
High Energy Density Laboratory Astrophysics 2008
We have commissioned a high-energy glass-laser at the Large Plasma Device (LAPD) to study the interaction of a dense laser-produced plasma with a large (17 m) magnetized plasma. First experiments with an energy of the laser blow-off an order of magnitude higher than previous work (Gekelman et al. in J. Geophys. Res. 108(A7):1281 produced large amplitude Alfvén waves (δB ⊥ /B 0 ≈ 15%). We will discuss the potential of this facility for collisionless laboratory astrophysics experiments.doi:10.1007/978-90-481-9999-0_27 fatcat:dbhajk2yrjgfjdhcrlp7c3edee
