About Massachusetts Institute Of Technology
The HEDP Division has a long history of exploring the physics of HEDP and ICF physics using experimental and theoretical methods. Experiments are currently being performed at the OMEGA laser at University of Rochester, the NIF laser at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and the Z-machine at Sandia National Laboratory using a suite of nuclear and x-ray diagnostics developed and implemented by MIT and its collaborators. These diagnostics are used to probe spatial and temporal variations in an ICF implosion through spectral, temporal, and imaging measurements of fusion products and x-rays. These measurements are being used to study a wide variety of physics processes and issues such as implosion dynamics and performance, the relationship of implosion symmetry to laser drive symmetry, the relative timing of the shock and compression phase, charged-particle transport and heating, ion-ion and ion-electron relaxation physics, kinetic and multi-ion effects and their possible impact on ignition designs, and the accuracy of various hydrodynamic and ion-kinetic simulations. Other HEDP experimental work at OMEGA and NIF involves nuclear astrophysics, magnetic reconnection, plasma jets, an...d hydrodynamic instabilities in plasmas. Theoretical work is also being conducted in the area of slowing down and transport of ions and electrons in high-energy-density plasmas. In addition, an important goal of the Division is to educate and train young students and scientists; at present, the Division has ten graduate students and one postdoc.
