Impact of Beam Transport Method on Chamber and Driver Design for Heavy Ion Inertial Fusion Energy


In heavy ion inertial fusion energy systems, intense beams of ions must be transported from the exit of the final focus magnet system through the target chamber to hit millimeter spot sizes on the target. In this paper, three different modes of beam propagation are examined: neutralized ballistic transport, assisted pinched transport, and self-pinched… (More)
