Free standing target technologies for inertial fusion energy: Target fabrication, characterization, and delivery

Abstract

Inertial fusion energy (IFE) research indicates that the energy generation by means of cryogenic fuel target compression requires that targets must be injected to the target chamber center at a rate of about 6 Hz. This requirement can be fulfilled only if the targets are free-standing. The most interesting results concerning the activity of the Lebedev Physical Institute in the area of free-standing targets (FST) fabrication, characterization and delivery are presented.
