Product of the deuterium and tritium number densities in simulation
// Journal Covers
Presents the first results from an experimental campaign to measure the atomic ablator-gas mix in the deceleration phase of gas-filled capsule implosions on the National Ignition Facility.
Marine organisms
// Journal Covers
Research team analyzes records of bulk and amino-acid-specific 15N/14N isotopic ratios (δ15N) preserved in the skeletons of long-lived deep-sea proteinaceous corals collected from the Hawaiian archipelago; these isotopic records serve as a proxy for the source of nitrogen-supported export production through time.
Experiment diagram
// Journal Covers
Research shows that the interaction of relativistic-intensity, picosecond laser pulses with solid targets is affected by the reflected light through the strong currents and 104  T magnetic fields it produces.
Molecular model
// Journal Covers
This paper reports observations of shock compressed, unreacted hydrogen peroxide at pressures up to the von Neumann pressure for a steady detonation wave, using ultrafast laser-driven shock wave methods.
Graphic of waveguide
// Journal Covers
A new generation of hollow waveguide (HWG) gas cells of unprecedented compact dimensions facilitating low sample volumes suitable for broad- and narrow-band mid-infrared (MIR; 2.5–20 μm) sensing applications is reported: the substrate-integrated hollow waveguide (iHWG).
Plasma images and data
// Journal Covers
We report a study of materials recovered from a uranium-containing plasma generated by an electric arc.
Spectroscopic data
// Journal Covers
We report the application of near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy as a non-contact, non-destructive method to rapidly analyze uranium ore concentrate materials for species and/or process information.
Molecular podel
// Journal Covers
Calculations of the electronic structure of clusters of plutonium have been performed, within the framework of the relativistic discrete‐variational method.
Fusion data
// Journal Covers
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory includes a precision laser system now capable of delivering 1.8 MJ at 500 TW of 0.35-μm light to a target.
Images of resonant nanocavities
// Journal Covers
We investigate a plasmonic resonant structure tunable from ultra-violet to near infrared wavelengths with maximum absorbance strength over 95% due to a highly efficient coupling with incident light.
