Heavy ion driven LMF design concept. Revised

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From 1988 to 1991, the US Department of Energy conducted a study of the requirements, designs and costs for a Laboratory Microfusion Facility (LMF). The primary purpose of the LMF would be testing of weapons physics and effects simulation using the output from microexplosions of inertial fusion targets. It does not need a high repetition rate, efficient driver system as required by an electrical generating plant; however there would be so many features in common that the design, construction and operation of an LMF would considerably advance the application of inertial confinement fusion to energy production. The DOE study concentrated ... continued below

Description

From 1988 to 1991, the US Department of Energy conducted a study of the requirements, designs and costs for a Laboratory Microfusion Facility (LMF). The primary purpose of the LMF would be testing of weapons physics and effects simulation using the output from microexplosions of inertial fusion targets. It does not need a high repetition rate, efficient driver system as required by an electrical generating plant; however there would be so many features in common that the design, construction and operation of an LMF would considerably advance the application of inertial confinement fusion to energy production. The DOE study concentrated particularly on the LMF driver, with design and component development undertaken at several national laboratories. Heavy Ions, although considered a possible LMF driver, did not receive attention until the final stages of this study since its program management was through the Office of Energy Research rather than Defense Programs. However, during preparation of the summary report for the study it was decided that an account of heavy ions was needed for a complete survey of the driver candidates. The conceptual heavy ion LMF driver design created for the DOE report did not receive the level of scrutiny of the other driver concepts and, unlike the others, no cost analysis by an independent contractor was performed.
