Abstract

Abstract In the study of laser driven deuterium-tritium (D-T) fusion reactions CR-39 has become an established detector. In this paper we will review our own work at the Central Laser Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, U.K. These studies fall into two categories • (i) measurement of the number and energy spectrum of thermonuclear products and knock-on which escape the target. This measurement is used to determine the degree of target compression and • (ii) a study of the stopping power to α-particles and protons of hot dense matter of temperatures ∼100eV.
