Direct-Drive Laser Fusion Experiments Move Toward Target Ignition

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Conditions capable of producing a direct drive laser fusion yield that is five times higher than the current record for laser fusion energy yield have been demonstrated. The work, which shows the use of direct-drive laser fusion to compress fuel to about half the pressure required to ignite it, represents an advance in a national research initiative to develop fusion as an energy source. In a direct-drive approach to inertial confinement fusion (ICF), researchers at the University of Rochester’s Laboratory of Laser Energetics (LLE) targeted 60 laser beams to strike a millimeter-sized...Read full article
