Recherches actuelles

Mes activités de recherche se trouvent dans le contexte de la fusion laser :

  • l’interaction des lasers avec des plasmas en expansion,
  • l’interaction entre des impulsions courtes (’sub-ps’) avec la matière dense et l’hydrodynamique radiative des plasmas chauds.

J’ai effectué de nombreuses études sur la modélisation des instabilités paramétriques qui sont néfastes pour la fusion par laser. Mes études combinent des approches théoriques et numériques en utilisant des approches fluides et cinétique du plasma.

Notre travail d’équipe sur la modélisation d l’interaction des faisceaux laser avec des plasmas en expansion, en tenant compte des instabilités paramétriques en géométrie multidimensionnelle, a montré un progrès important pour la compréhension des résultats expérimentaux. en particulier sur l’interpretation des effets de saturation des instabilités paramétriques de diffusion.

La modélisation et la compréhension des instabilités paramétriques etait le sujet des projets "CORPARIN" et "ILPHYGERIE" financés par l’Agence Nationale de Recherche (programme ANR-BLANC).

Dans le domaine de l’interaction des impulsion laser ultra courte avec la matière à densité solide, j’ai étudié des mécanismes de génération d’harmoniques ainsi que l’évolution de l’état de matière d’une cible après le passage d’une impulsion laser, en fonction de sa durée et son intensité : un plasma chaud classique en pleine expansion hydrodynamique ou un plasma dense sans expansion ("hot solid").
