One of the challenges with indirect-drive inertial confinement fusion is to compress the millimeter-scale deuterium-tritium (DT) filled spherical capsules in a symmetric fashion at a high convergence ratio ~ Even a ~ 1% imperfections in flux in the symmetry of the radiation drive can lead to residual kinetic energy on the hotspot under such high convergence.

    This book is on inertial confinement fusion, an alternative way to produce electrical power from hydogen fuel by using powerful lasers or particle beams. It involves the compression of tiny amounts (micrograms) of fuel to thousands times solid density and pressures otherwise existing only in the center of stars. Thanks to advances in laser technology, it is now possible to produce such extreme. While the tokamak is a leading concept for the realization of fusion, other concepts (helical confinement and, in a broader sense, other magnetic and inertial configurations) are also addressed in the book. At over pages, this publication provides an unparalleled resource for fusion physicists and engineers.

This book analyzes the progress that has been made in indirect-drive inertial-confinement fusion, in which energy is delivered to the fuel in two steps: first high-intensity lasers are used to generate x-rays, then these are focused on a target to heat it to ignition.

Much of the material in this book was previously classified by DOE. Newcomers to the field of inertial confinement fusion (ICF) often have difficulty establishing a clear picture of the overall field. The reason for this is because, while there are many books devoted to special topics within the field, there is none that provides an overview of the field as a whole.

After a broad overview, the book follows the processes from the driver technology to burn physics in chronological order.

As each topic appears, the author details the physical concepts and obstacles. Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF)) is an approach to fusion that relies on the inertia of the fuel mass to provide confinement.

To achieve conditions under which inertial confinement is sufficient for efficient thermonuclear burn, a capsule (generally a spherical shell) containing thermonuclear fuel is compressed in an implosion process to Cited by: 3.

This book is on inertial confinement fusion, an alternative way to produce electrical power from hydrogen fuel by using powerful lasers or particle beams. It involves the compression of tiny amounts (micrograms) of fuel to thousand times solid density and pressures otherwise existing.

This book takes a holistic approach to plasma physics and controlled fusion via Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) techniques, establishing a new standard for clean nuclear power generation.

Inertial Confinement Fusion techniques to enable laser-driven fusion have long been confined to theBrand: Springer International Publishing. Most magnetic-confinement experiments use copper coils cooled by water. When scaled up to ITER size, copper coils would consume a large fraction of the electricity generated by the power plant, and the net output of the plant would be reduced.

Inertial-confinement fusion is described next in this section. Tritium breeding is the next topic. Nuclear Fusion by Inertial Confinement provides a comprehensive analysis of directly driven inertial confinement fusion. All important aspects of the process are covered, including scientific considerations that support the concept, lasers and particle beams as drivers, target fabrication, analytical and numerical calculations, and materials and engineering considerations.
