Title: Hydrodynamic instabilities in ablative tamped flows

Abstract

Perturbation amplitudes and correlated growth rates of hydrodynamic instabilities in the compressed core of a directly driven inertial confinement fusion capsule are analyzed in planar and spherical geometries, with and without heat conduction. It is found that the maximum Lagrangian perturbation amplitude is always located inside the hot spot and not at the ablation front when heat conduction is switched on. A reduction of the Rayleigh-Taylor growth rate compared to the classical one is also shown. The growth rate is varying in k (against k{sup 1/2} classically), due to the unsteady state regime of the deceleration.
