Magnetic effects in astrophysically relevant laboratory plasmas

Abstract:

Astrophysics typically uses observation, theory and simulation to further the understanding of the cosmos. By using high power lasers, scaled astrophysical events can be created in the laboratory.

This thesis describes laboratory results based on two different astrophysical phenomena, particle acceleration and the turbulent dynamo mechanism, both of which are governed by magnetic fields.

Particle acceleration is commonly seen at astrophysical shocks. The exact mechanism ...
