The objective of this work is to investigate methods for
fabricating, characterizing and transporting cryogenic inertial
confinement fusion targets on a continuous basis. A micropro-
cessor-based data acquisition system has been built that converts
a complete target image to digital data, which are than analyzed
by automated software procedures. The low temperatures required
to freeze the hydrogen isotopes contained in a target is pro-
vided by a cryogenic cold chamber capable of attaining 15 K.
A new method for target manipulation and positioning is studied
that employs molecular gas beams to levitate a target and an
electrostatic quadrupole structure to provide for its lateral
containment. Since the electrostatic target-pcsitioning schene
requires that the targets be charged, pr cimlnary investigation
has been carried out for a targec-charging meclanism based an
Here’s what’s next.
