Technical Paper / Thirteenth Target Fabrication Specialists’ Meeting /

In conventional inertial confinement fusion (ICF) a high power laser system is used to compress a cryogenic target and create energy. One of the challenges for ICF cryogenics is producing a homogeneous and uniform fuel on the inside surface of a spherical polymer shell. In this report, we will discuss a conceptual approach based on free-standing targets and the results of our current developments.
