Success in inertial confinement fusion (ICF) requires sophisticated,
characterized targets. The increasing fidelity of three-dimensional (3D),
radiation hydrodynamic computer codes has made it possible to design
targets for ICF which can compensate for limitations in the existing
single shot laser and Z pinch ICF drivers. Developments in ICF target
fabrication technology allow more esoteric target designs to be
fabricated. At present, requirements require new deterministic
nano-material fabrication on micro scale.
