Design and Fabrication of a Novel Cryogenic Laser-Driven Ignition Target

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The targets used in the campaign to achieve fusion ignition at the National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world's largest laser, will be some of the most complex and precise ever built. Key to the success of the campaign is repeatable performance of the targets as components of each experiment. We have developed a target design that will achieve the necessary precision and manufacturability, and will also provide the necessary repeatability while retaining experimental flexibility.
