June 2016 DOE Report

Cross-Beam Energy Transfer Modeling

The LPSE (laser–plasma simulation environment) code system provides a framework of physics packages that can be assembled for particular laser–plasma interaction physics problems in inertial confinement fusion. A previous DOE Monthly report (July 2015) showcased the use of LPSE in the modeling and understanding of the two-plasmon–decay instability.
