Thermonuclear Fusion Plasma Heated by Lasers
The interaction between laser and plasma has been investigated using the irradiation of YAG-glass and glass-glass laser systems on the solid hydrogen and deuterium target. The broad band laser system, the latter, was much more effective for heating which might be attributed to a double resonance absorption. Induced back scattering of SHG and Brillouin was studied. Isotope effect of the ion wave was observed. In Appendix the properties of high power disc laser and the results of a computer experiment on pellet compression were presented.
