  • We present results from simulations performed to investigate the effects of dopant radiative cooling in inertial confinement fusion indirect-drive capsule implosion experiments. Using a one-dimensional radiation-hydrodynamics code that includes inline collisional-radiative modeling, we compute in detail the non-local thermodynamic equilibrium atomic kinetics and spectral characteristics for Ar-doped DD fuel. Specifically, we present results from a series of calculations in which the concentration of the Ar is varied, and examine the sensitivity of the fuel conditions (e.g., electron temperature) and neutron yield to the Ar dopant concentration. Simulation results are compared with data obtained in OMEGA indirect-drive experiments in which monochromaticmore » imaging and spectral measurements of Ar He{sub {beta}} and Ly{sub {beta}} line emission were recorded. The incident radiation drive on the capsule is computed with a three-dimensional view factor code using the laser beam pointings and powers from the OMEGA experiments. We also examine the sensitivity of the calculated compressed core electron temperatures and neutron yields to the radiation drive on the capsule and to the radiation and atomic modeling in the simulations.« less

  • Tellurium doped AlGaAsSb epitaxial layers were grown lattice-matched on GaSb substrates and lattice-mismatched on semi-insulating GaAs substrates by organometallic vapor phase epitaxy. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy and Hall data showed that the ratio of carrier concentration to Te concentration decreases from 40% to 5% when the Te concentration increases from 4.8 x 10{sup 17} cm{sup -3} to 1.3 x 10{sup 19} cm{sup -3}. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) showed that the material with heavily doped Te generates a high density (about 10{sup 8} cm{sup 2}) of planar defects. Most of the Te-related defects originate at the GaSb buffer layer/AlGaAsSb epilayer interface.more » In addition, discrete precipitates were observed in the heavily doped AlGaAsSb layer. TEM imaging revealed amorphous defects (likely residual native oxides) along the GaSb substrate/GaSb buffer interface. High resolution TEM imaging revealed high quality growth beyond the GaSb-buffer/GaSb-substrate interfacial defects. The microstructural impact of GaSb-buffer/GaSb-substrate interface defects on the crystalline quality of AlGaAsSb layers is insignificant.« less
  • Techniques for producing radiation hardening in GaAs light emitters by use of donor dopants and isovalent anion substitutional alloying are reported. Six different donor dopants, within the concentration range from 1 to 20 x 10/sup 17/ cm/sup -3/, were added to GaAs substrates. P-N light emitters were then fabricated and exposed to gamma irradiation from a /sup 60/Co source in steps to a total absorbed dose of 10/sup 8/ rads (Si). Results of the study are reported in terms of the damage parameter K/sub ..gamma../tau/sub o/ where K/sub ..gamma../ is the damage coefficient and tau/sub o/ is the preirradiated minoritymore » carrier lifetime. Selenium (Se) was the most effective dopant for hardening GaAs light emitters followed in order of decreasing effectiveness by Sn, Si (donor), Te, Ge (amphoteric), and Si (amphoteric). Two additional observations in this portion of the investigation also seemed to favor the use of Se for hardening: (1) The recovery of the emitters following isochronal annealing occurs in the sequence Se, Sn, Si, Te, and Ge, with the Se-doped samples showing the greatest annealing (to 60% of original quantum efficiency). (2) The shift of the peak emitting wavelength with irradiation (always toward shorter wavelengths) is found to be least for the Se-doped samples. The second technique for hardening involved substituting the isovalent anion phosphorus (P) into the GaAs lattice in place of As. This action resulted in a lowering of the damage coefficient, K/sub ..gamma../, by several orders of magnitude as the P content increased to about 50%. At higher P concentrations (to 100% P), the coefficient remained constant at 0.27 (rad.s)/sup -1/. Irradiation caused a shift toward shorter peak emitter wavelengths for samples alloyed with less than about 20% P.« less
