Scheme of DRACO-LSP integration.
Fuel assembly used in the integrated simulation (a), the compressed target density (b) and temperature (c) profiles, and the scheme of electron injection (d).
Snapshots of the (a) plasma density (in ), (b) hot-electron density (in ), (c) plasma electron temperature (in keV), and (d) azimuthal magnetic field (in MG) after the beginning of the hot-electron pulse.
Snapshots of the (a) plasma density (in ) and (b) temperature (in keV) at the burn stage .
(a) Target density (in ) and (b) electron-beam density (in ) in the simulation in which the effect of the magnetic field on beam electrons was artificially suppressed.
Minimum energy required for ignition as a function of the beam divergence half-angle in the full simulations with magnetic fields (solid line) and in the simulations with magnetic fields suppressed (dashed line).
