The influence of the transport of fast charged particles in burning fusion targets
For an adequate description of the physics of laser plasma it is necessary to consider a large number of physical processes. One of them is the transfer of energy of a fast particle products of thermonuclear reactions. The problem of the birth and transfer of the charged particles resulting from fusion reactions in a burning deuterium-tritium plasma, is very significant. It is important to reflect in the model, where and how charged particles give up their energy, i.e. to calculate the non-stationary transfer of energy of the fast charged particles. The paper presents a model calculation of the transport of α-particles, we numerically investigate the influence of this process on the parameters of the target.
