Abstract

The study of crucial astrophysical phenomena such as electron screening in nuclear fusion is strongly connected with laser generated plasmas, since the give us the opportunity of studing screening factor and fusion rates in an unexplored low energy range. At power intensities > 10^12 W/cm^2, laser interacting with solid target produce a rapid expansion of the plasma plume, with ion temperatures of several hundred of eV and densities around 10^20-10^21 cm-3. In this paper we report some results of numerical simulations of d+d fusion reaction rates obtained by a code, that allows us to simulated the interaction of a laser with a CD2 target
