Title: Cryogenci DT and D2 Targets for Inertial Confinement Fusion

Abstract

Ignition target designs for inertial confinement fusion on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) are based on a spherical ablator containing a solid, cryogenic-fuel layer of deuterium and tritium. The need for solid-fuel layers was recognized more than 30 years ago and considerable effort has resulted in the production of cryogenic targets that meet most of the critical fabrication tolerances for ignition on the NIf. Significant progress with the formation and characterization of cryogenic targets for both direct and x-ray drive will be described. Results from recent cryogenic implosions will also be presented.
