An analytical model for the study of the conditions for central ignition of imploding shell targets is presented. The model is based on a description of the stagnation phase in which the shell is considered to stagnate isentropically except in a central region of the fuel where the ignition profiles are determined by the competition of the energy losses due to thermal conduction and radiation with the heating due to compressional work and alpha particle deposition of energy. As a result, the… CONTINUE READING
