Fusion neutron yield from high intensity laser-cluster interaction
Physics of Plasmas
The fusion neutron yield from a compact neutron source is studied. Laser-irradiated deuterium clusters serve as a precursor of high-energy deuterium ions, which react with the walls of a fusion reaction chamber and produce copious amounts of neutrons in fusion reactions. The explosion of deuterium clusters with initial radius of 50− 200 Å irradiated by a subpicosecond laser with intensity of 10 16 W/cm 2 is examined theoretically. We studied the conversion efficiency of laser energy to iondoi:10.1063/1.2210467 fatcat:ifb3plkphnfpnl5fzwigah2ydi
