Title: Development and Application of a Predictive Computational Tool for Short-Pulse, High-Intensity Target Interactions

Abstract

The widely differing spatial, temporal, and density scales needed to accurately model the fast ignition process and other short-pulse laser-plasma interactions leads to a computationally challenging project that is difficult to solve using a single code. This report summarizes the work performed on a three year LDRD to couple together three independent codes using PYTHON to build a new integrated computational tool. An example calculation using this new model is described.
