An Investigation of the Nature Properties of Plasma

Peter Evans, Frederick Osman and Heinrich Hora


This study presents the characteristics of the plasma and the effect of the laser beam to best suit the plasma model behavior. Special attention is paid to the “Genuine” Two Fluid Model and the ponder-motive and transient forces. These models are translated into a numerical study of the parameters, such as the electric field density and temperature distributions once electromagnetic energy is supplied to the plasma. The parameters are presented graphically against time and distance into a small plasma fuel pellet. It is noted how field density and ions form undulations through the plasma. Types of plasma fuels are discussed with regards to their key parameters, such as density, volume and temperature. These characteristics were initially used in computations that were performed using the laser driven inertial fusion energy option based on volume ignition with the natural adiabatic self-similarity compression and expansion hydrodynamics[1].
