Title: Summaries of FY 2018 LANL experimental campaigns at the OMEGA and OMEGA-EP Laser Facilities

Abstract

In FY 2018, Los Alamos National Laboratory carried out 21 shot days on the OMEGA and OMEGA-EP laser facilities in the areas of High Energy Density (HED) Science and Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF). Our focus areas were on radiation flow, hydrodynamic turbulent mix and burn, and coupled Kelvin-Helmholtz (KH)/Richtmyer-Meshkov (RM) instability growth including in convergent geometry. We also had several focused shot days on transport properties in the kinetic regime. We continue to develop advanced diagnostics such as Neutron Imaging , and performed tests of a new imaging concept to be installed on NIF. We executed experiments in support of our double-shell campaign, and we began initial experiments using the new Revolver platform. Below is a summary of our campaigns, their motivation, and main results from this year.
