High-density compression experiments at ILE, Osaka

Abstract:

Direct-drive implosion experiments on the GEKKO XII laser (9 kJ, 0.5 μm, 2 ns) with deuterium and tritium (DT) exchanged plastic hollow shell targets demonstrated fuel areal densities (ρR) of approximately 0.1 g/cm2 and fuel densities of approximately 600 times liquid density at fuel temperatures of approximately 0.3 keV. (The density and ρR values refer only to DT and do not include carbons in the plastic targets.) These values are to be compared with thermonuclear ignition conditions, i.e.,...
