Title: The National Direct-Drive Program: OMEGA to the National Ignition Facility

The goal of the National Direct-Drive Program is to demonstrate and understand the physics of laser direct drive (LDD). Efforts are underway on OMEGA for the 100-Gbar Campaign to demonstrate and understand the physics for hot-spot conditions and formation relevant for ignition at the 1-MJ scale, and at the National Ignition Facility to develop an understanding of the direct-drive physics at long scale lengths for the MJ Direct-Drive Campaign. For this paper the strategy of the National Direct-Drive Program is described; the requirements for the DT cryogenic fill-tube target being developed for OMEGA are presented; and preliminary LDD implosion measurements of hydrodynamic mixing seeded by laser imprint, the target-mounting stalk, and microscopic surface debris are reported.
