Abstract

In the first three sections of this chapter we address the most interesting of the numerous technical applications of high energy density physics—controlled thermonuclear fusion with magnetic and inertial confinement as well as thermonuclear fusion with the use of heavy ion beams. We touch upon the development of compact laser-plasma accelerators of high-energy electrons and ions based on new-generation femtosecond lasers. In the last section of the chapter we consider the use in experiments of synchrotron radiation sources, free-electron lasers, high-intensity sources of terahertz radiation pulses, as well as plasmas in accelerators.
