Title: Modeling hydrodynamics, magnetic fields, and synthetic radiographs for high-energy-density plasma flows in shock-shear targets

Abstract

Three-dimensional FLASH radiation-magnetohydrodynamics (radiation-MHD) modeling is carried out to study the hydrodynamics and magnetic fields in the shock-shear derived platform. Here, simulations indicate that fields of tens of Tesla can be generated via the Biermann battery effect due to vortices and mix in the counterpropagating shock-induced shear layer. Synthetic proton radiography simulations using MPRAD and synthetic X-ray image simulations using SPECT3D are carried out to predict the observable features in the diagnostics. Quantifying the effects of magnetic fields in inertial confinement fusion and high-energy-density plasmas represents frontier research that has far-reaching implications in basic and applied sciences.
