Laser-Induced Deuteron Fusion in Aerogels — •Mikhail Smirnov1 and Vladimir P. Krainov21Max-Born-Institut, Berlin — 2MIPT, Moscow Region, Russia

A SiO2 aerogel with absorbed deuterium is suggested as a target for the fusion reaction d+d→ He3+n by a super-intense ultra-short laser pulse. Multiple inner ionization of oxygen and silicon atoms in the elementary fibers of this fractal aerogel takes place in the super-intense laser field. The free electrons generated by inner ionization are removed from the aerogel skeleton by the laser field at the leading edge of the laser pulse. The subsequent Coulomb explosion of the deuterated aerogel skeleton propels deuterons up to kinetic energies of ten keV and higher. The neutron yield is estimated at up to 106 neutrons per laser pulse during ∼ 200÷ 500 ps if the peak intensity is 1018 W/cm2 and the pulse duration is 35 fs.
