Laboratory supernovae : numerical and experimental simulations


This thesis subject aims to explore the physics of supernovae in order to establish which processes can be studied in the laboratory and under which conditions. The student will have to master the physics of these extraordinary explosions and identify the major problems of current modeling to imagine new relevant experimental concepts. He will identify and then attempt to remove the technological and scientific obstacles associated with these experiments in order to propose sizing on laser-type installations with a power class of kilojoule to megajoule. The 2D and 3D modeling of past experiments concerning blast waves and radiative shocks will enable the doctoral student to acquire the skills to design these new experiments.
