Technical Paper / Fusion Energy - IFE Chamber Technology

An inertial fusion energy (IFE) wetted wall configuration provides the advantage of a renewable armor to accommodate the threat spectra. Key issues are the re-establishment of the thin liquid armor and the state of the chamber environment prior to each shot relative to the requirements imposed by the driver and target thermal and injection control.
