dc.description.abstractWe present comprehensive two-dimensional (2D) particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations on the transport of a relativistic electron beam in a plasma in the context of fast ignition fusion. The 2D PIC simulations are performed by constructing two different simulation planes and have shown the complete stabilization and destabilization of the Weibel instability due to the beam temperature and background plasma collisions, respectively. Some three-dimensional PIC simulation results on the filamentary structures are also shown thereby further shedding light on the filamentation of the electron beam in plasmas. The linear growth rates of fastest growing mode in the beam-plasma system are compared with a theoretical model developed and are found in good agreement with each other.en_US
