A proposed design for multishell cryogenic laser fusion targets using superconducting levitation

A method is described for using the diamagnetism of superconductors to levitate a permanently magnetized fuel pellet within a spherical superconducting shell in a multishell cryogenic laser fusion

Evaluation of Positional Stability in Active Magnetic Levitation Using Spherical HTS Bulk for Inertial Nuclear Fusion

Fuel supply is a fundamental issue in application of inertial nuclear fusion. To address this issue, we propose the use of an HTS superconductor capsule containing nuclear fuel, which can levitate in

Accurate Position Control of Active Magnetic Levitation Using Sphere-Shaped HTS Bulk for Inertial Nuclear Fusion

We have been developing an active magnetic levitation system, which is composed of a field-cooled disk-shaped or sphere-shaped high-temperature superconducting bulks (HTS bulks) and vertically piled

Magnetic suspension of a pellet for inertial confinement fusion

In inertial confinement fusion experiments, the symmetrical implosion calls for a new scheme: a nonsupported pellet. In this article, the first experiment is conducted using a plastic pellet covered

HTSC Maglev Systems for IFE Target Transport Applications

A challenge in inertial fusion energy (IFE) research is to deliver the target to the target chamber center at a high repetition rate. Therefore, the problem of target fabrication and delivery is

Improving ICF implosion performance with alternative capsule supports

The thin membrane that holds the capsule in-place in the hohlraum is recognized as one of the most significant contributors to reduced performance in indirect drive inertial confinement fusion (ICF)

Magnetic properties and critical currents of MgB2

This review focuses on the superconducting properties of MgB2 that are relevant for power applications. The reversible mixed state parameters are the most important, since they define the limiting

High flux symmetry of the spherical hohlraum with octahedral 6LEHs at the hohlraum-to-capsule radius ratio of 5.14

We propose a spherical hohlraum with octahedral six laser entrance holes at a specific hohlraum-to-capsule radius ratio of 5.14 for inertial fusion study, which has robust high symmetry during the

First Investigation on the Radiation Field of the Spherical Hohlraum.

The first spherical hohlraum energetics experiment is accomplished on the SGIII-prototype laser facility and it is indicated that the radiation temperatures measured by the FXRDs depend on the observation angles and are related to the view field.

Hot-spot mix in ignition-scale inertial confinement fusion targets.

Mixing of plastic ablator material, doped with Cu and Ge dopants, deep into the hot spot of ignition-scale inertial confinement fusion implosions by hydrodynamic instabilities is diagnosed with x-ray
