- We have used homogeneous plasmas of high density (up to 1.3 X 10²¹ electrons per cm³) and temperature (∼ 3 keV) with large density scale lengths (∼2 mm) to approximate conditions within National Ignition Facility (NIF) hohlraums. Within these plasmas we have studied the dependence of stimulated Raman (SRS) and Brillouin (SBS) scattering on beam smoothing and plasma conditions at the relevant laser intensity (3ω, 2 X 10¹⁵Wcm²). Both SBS and SRS are reduced by the use of smoothing by spectral dispersion (SSD).
