Project:  Numerical simulations and researches on particle transportation, acceleration and radiation in laser plasma interactions
Abstract:  The high energy density physics (HEDP) is a new frontier of interdisciplinary studies of matters under extreme high temperature, high density, or extreme high fields, etc. Usually such conditions are found only inside stars or related astrophysical environment. With the development of high power lasers, such conditions are available even in a moderate university laboratory [for example, the Laboratory for Laser Plasmas (LLP), SJTU]. Among the major topics of HEDP are laser-plasma interactions related with the inertial confined fusion, relativistic laser-plasma-based particle acceleration and radiation, laboratory astrophysics based upon high power lasers, etc. The team of numerical laser-driven HEDP carries out parallel computer simulation and theoretical analysis on relevant problems mentioned above and provides numerical support for the experimental data analysis. Currently the team members include Zheng-Ming Sheng, Min Chen, Jun Zheng, and Lu-Le Yu, along with 6 graduate students. The team members have rich experience in the development and application of multi-dimensional particle-in-cell codes, fluid codes, etc. and in the use of high performance computers in China and abroad. In the coming year, we plan to carry out numerical studies on relativistic laser-plasma-based particle acceleration and radiation, physics of fast ignition of fusion targets with the newly implemented supercomputer π at SJTU.
