Radiation hydrodynamics

The radiation hydrodynamics group inside the Nuclear Fusion Institute works on the simulation of plasmas in the high energy density regime produced during the ICF process, laboratory astrophysics experiments or X-ray secundary sources.

Our team have developed a numerical simulation code to study the hydrodynamics and radiation transport inside plasmas and then estimate the properties of the system during its evolution. Also we have improved our EOS and opacity models to generate thermodynamic and transport data needed for our code.
