Title: Linear regime of two-plasmon decay and stimulated Raman scattering instability near the quarter-critical density in plasmas

Abstract

A model for the interaction between the laser light and the plasma waves near the quarter-critical density in plasmas has been studied. This model includes, but is not limited to, the instabilities of two-plasmon decay (TPD) and stimulated Raman scattering (SRS). The full simulation results show the instability growth in the wavevector domains corresponding to TPD and SRS, respectively, and the domain between those two. The instability growth rates and thresholds can be calculated in our model for the parameters of the inertial confinement fusion experiments without the approximations common in analytical theories.
