Semi-Lagrangian Vlasov simulations of laser-plasma interaction : review and advances

Abstract : We present some problems for which Vlasov simulations could bring real break-thought to study short pulse high intensity laser-plasma interaction for plasmas relevant to conditions met in the National Ignition Facility or the Laser MégaJoule under construction in France. Such a Vlasov code allows a fine description of parametric -like instabilities in underdense and overdense plasmas and their saturations, particle trapping, particle acceleration and nonlinear resonant wave-particle interaction till plasma conditions relevant to the fast Ignitor concept.
