A new paper was recently published on Nuclear Fusion (D. Batani et al 2019 Nucl. Fusion 59 ,032012).
The paper includes a review of the experimental results obtained in recent years at PALS, irradiating a thin multilayer target by 1w and 3w laser pulses at Shock Ignition intensities. Some numerical results obtained by hydrosimulations and Particle In Cell simulations are also included in the paper. Laser Plasma Interaction results, in particular the characterization of parametric instabilities (SBS, SRS and TPD), were carried out by the ILIL group.
