A study on dense plasmas using molecular dynamics and X-ray scattering techniques

Abstract:

Matter exists in the cores of planets and the crusts of neutron stars, as well as the inside of inertial fusion experiments, in the warm dense matter (WDM) regime. This type of matter, defined by temperatures of several electronvolts and densities comparable to solids, is characterised by long-range Coulomb interactions between ions and non-negligible electron degeneracy, and is therefore inherently difficult to model theoretically.

In this work, time resolved X-ray diffraction is u...
