Progress and perspectives of fast ignition

Abstract:

Recent progress in the physics of fast ignition of fusion targets is reviewed here. Fundamental studies on hot electron energy transport show that the scheme looks promising if the heating pulse can be guided close enough to a compressed core. The idea of using cone-guided compression was first demonstrated experimentally under a Japan-UK collaboration. The use of the gold cone was extremely successful and showed a 103 neutron increase out of CD target implosion with a 300 J/0.5 ps enforced h...
