Title: Target technologies for indirect drive ignition on the NIF

Abstract

X-ray driven ignition targets for the NIF will include fuel capsule materials different from those used up to now in ICF experiments. They will contain cryogenic fuel layers, and will be enclosed in cryogenic hohlraums. These hohlraums must provide the thermal environment required to shape the fuel layers, and must be supported by cryogenic equipment in the NIF target chamber. The methods for filling and delivering the targets to the NIF chamber will combine high-temperature diffusion with cryogenic transport. A program is in place in the US to design and develop the ignition targets, and the cryogenic support and fill systems needed to field them. This program includes participation from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and General Atomics.
