Laser-driven strong magnetostatic fields with applications to charged beam transport and magnetized high energy-density physics

Abstract:

Powerful laser-plasma processes are explored to generate discharge currents of a few 100 kA in coil targets, yielding magnetostatic fields (B-fields) in excess of 0.5 kT. The quasi-static currents are provided from hot electron ejection from the laser-irradiated surface. According to our model, which describes the evolution of the discharge current, the major control parameter is the laser irradiance Ilasλ 2 las. The space-time evolution of the B-fields is experimentally characterized by high...
