Title: Neutron yield in conic targets with additional laser fuel heating

Abstract

The compression and the thermonuclear energy release in conic targets with additional laser heating are calculated. It is shown that irradiation of conic targets with a compound (long plus short) KrF laser pulse with energy 300 - 400 kJ can provide a neutron yield of {approx}10{sup 16} per shot and, accordingly, target energy gain coefficients above 0.1. (interaction of laser radiation with matter. laser plasma)
