These measurements were executed at electron temperatures and number densities in the range of 1.4–2.8 keV and 4×1023–8×1023 cm−3, respectively. For these conditions, it is experimentally demonstrated that the Brown-Preston-Singleton formalism provides a better description of the ion stopping than other formalisms around the Bragg peak, except for the ion stopping at vi∼0.3vth, where the Brown-Preston-Singleton formalism significantly underpredicts the observation. It is postulated that the inclusion of nuclear-elastic scattering, and possibly coupled modes of the plasma ions, in the modeling of the ion-ion interaction may explain the discrepancy of ∼20% at this velocity, which would have an impact on our understanding of the alpha energy deposition and heating of the fuel ions, and thus reduce the ignition threshold in an ignition experiment.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/55049||ISSN:||0031-9007||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.015002||Source:||Physical Review Letters [ISSN 0031-9007], v. 122 (1), (015002)|
