The Effects of Fluid Instabilities on Laser Fusion Pellets
Recently a number of publications have dealt with the phenomena of Taylor instability in attempts to determine how the classical Taylor picture is modified in the presence of ablation and energy transport, and to estimate the importance of the effect to target implosion design. Stephen Bodner,1 now at the Naval Research Laboratory, performed model calculations which indicated that ablative stabilization can partially eliminate Taylor growth.
