Selina-Jane Spencer: Inflationary Stimulated Raman Scattering (iSRS) in inhomogenous plasmas 

Abstract: In this work we take as a starting point the extensive literature on iSRS in homogeneous plasmas for indirect-drive ICF, and use PIC simulations to probe how iSRS develops in plasmas with a density gradient, such as those that will be present in shock-ignition direct-drive ICF schemes. In this talk, we will present results of the first simulations of iSRS in inhomogeneous plasmas with NIF-relevant parameters and scale-lengths. An increased understanding of the link between coronal density scale-lengths and reflectivity due to SRS and iSRS is of significant interest to the development of shock-ignition ICF schemes.

UKRI Deadlines

Due to the implementation of a new UKRI funding system (TFS) there will be a fixed quarterly deadlines for some grants which would previously have been on open calls, this is to allow necessary system amendments and updates.

The first deadline after implementation will be 28th September 2023 and applies to those calls listed below:

EPSRC New Investigator Award

EPSRC Network Grant

EPSRC Post Doctoral Fellowship

EPSRC Open Fellowship

EPSRC Open Plus Fellowship

EPSRC Working with overseas scientists

EPSRC Standard research grant

EPSRC Discipline hopping in ICT

EPSRC Overseas travel grant
