We investigate the atomic recombination of stopped muons in dense plasmas of potential μ-catalysis concern. It is shown that in addition to the usual two-body radiative μ-ion recombination R2 highlighting low excited states and moderate plasma temperature T, a novel three-body process R3 involving ion–ion correlations could deliver a contribution s...

Heavy ion inertial fusion (HIF) energy would be one of promising energy resources securing our future energy in order to sustain our human life for centuries and beyond. The heavy ion beam (HIB) has remarkable preferable features to release the fusion energy in inertial confinement fusion: in particle accelerators HIBs are generated with a high dri...

The complete deuteron and triton polarization in the DT fusion increases the reactivity by 50%. For Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF), due to the dynamics of the fusion reaction process, the fusion rate could even be further increased. It has been argued that the polarization would survive as well in magnetic as in inertial confinements. Recently,...
Chapter
Recently, we have proposed an experiment to test the persistence of the polarization in a fusion process \(\mathrm{D}(\mathrm{D}, {}^3\mathrm{He})\mathrm{n}\), using a powerful laser hitting a polarized HD target. The purpose of the present contribution is to examine in more detail the experimental constrains, to move from a principle proposal to a...
Article
Throughout the low latitude ocean, biological productivity is limited by the availability of the major nitrogen (N) and phosphorous (P) nutrients. The relative abundance of these nutrients in seawater (14.3N:1P) is closely matched to the average elemental composition of marine plankton (16N:1P), a condition that is thought to arise from biological...

We propose an experiment to test the persistence of the polarization in a fusion process, using a terawatt laser hitting a polarized HD target. The polarized protons and deuterons heated in the plasma induced by the laser have a significant probability to fuse producing a 3He and a γ ray or a neutron in the final state. The angular distribution of...

A binary ionic mixture (BIM) in dense and hot plasmas of specific concern for inertial confinement fusion and white dwarf crust is considered as a target for incoming light ions with a velocity smaller than the thermal electron one. The given target stopping power, mostly BIM monitored, is specifically studied in terms of charge and mass asymmetry...
Article
We first pay attention to the inflight charge state distribution in a Pb ion beam propagating in a reactor-sized chamber delimited by metallic walls. We thus compare Livermore (code BIC) and Orsay (code BPIC) distributions in the presence of a residual Flibe gas pressure. Next, we replace the electron plasma due to Flibe ionization by a glidin...
Article
We consider the physics of the ballistic transport of intense ion beams in a heavy ion fusion reactor chamber filled with low pressure Flibe gas. We consider first a single beam envelope model and show via a simple case that emittance growth is an issue in the chamber as well as in the accelerator. We develop a model for the neutralization of beam...
Article
A fully electromagnetic particle in cell-Monte Carlo (PIC-MCC) code is considered for the ballistic transport of intense ion beams in a reaction chamber field with Flibe gas surrounding a pellet with a thermonuclear fuel in it. A specific emphasis is given to a self-consistent treatment of beam boundary conditions. Spurious electromagnetic waves ar...
Article
Simulating the beam propagation in the reaction chamber is of great interest for heavy ion inertial fusion. Although results have already been obtained at Berkeley and Livermore, CA, using two-dimensional RZ electromagnetic particle-in-cell PIC) codes, developing a three-dimensional code allows the study of all parameters and geometries. Developing...
Article
Simulating the beam propagation in the reaction chamber is of great interest for the heavy ion inertial fusion. Although preliminary results have already been obtained at Berkeley and Livermore using 2D-RZ electromagnetic Particle-In-Cell (PIC) codes, developing another 3D code allows the investigation of every parameter and geometry. Developing su...
Chapter
Heavy ion clusters are considered for driving an ICF pellet. They are shown to be effective at much lower energy and intensity than required for atomic ions. Direct pressure imparted to a DT pellet is estimated. The stopping of strongly correlated ion cluster debris flowing in a degenerate electron jellium target is considered for polarized (with r...
Chapter
A variational approach yields accurate upper and lower bounds for mean excitation energies and other related parameters describing the stopping of nonrelativistic pointlike charges by isolated species and ions embedded in dense and hot matter of relevance to particle-driven inertial fusion. The resulting I compare nicely with previous Hartree-Fock-...

THE PLUS-MINUS QUASI-BOUND PAIR IS SOLVED AS A 2D SCHROEDINGER H-LIKE PROBLEM DEMONSTRATING THAT QUANTUM EFFECTS ARE MARGINALLY SIGNIFUICANT FOR THE LOGGAS
Article
Full-text available
Damage caused by full impact of one LHC beam on solid copper has been previously studied using two-dimensional hydrodynamic computer simulations (1, 2). In the present paper we report numerical simulations that have been done to assess the damage caused to collimator materials due to impact of full SPS beam that comprises of 288 bunches of 450 GeV/...
