DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS FOR UNMAGNETIZED COLLISIONLESS-SHOCK MEASUREMENTS IN HOMOLOGOUS FLOWS

Abstract:

The subject of this paper is the design of practical laser experiments that can produce collisionless shocks mediated by the Weibel instability. Such shocks may be important in a wide range of astrophysical systems. Three issues are considered. The first issue is the implications of the fact that such experiments will produce expanding flows that are approximately homologous. As a result, both the velocity and the density of the interpenetrating plasma streams will be time dependent. The seco...
