Scaling of Laser Fusion Experiments for DD-Neutron Yield
Yields of neutrons produced in various laser fusion experiments conducted in recent decades are compared with each other. It has surprisingly been found that there is a possibility to make an overall

Model-independent determination of the astrophysical S factor in laser-induced fusion plasmas
In this paper, we present a new and general method for measuring the astrophysical S factor of nuclear reactions in laser-induced plasmas and we apply it to 2H(d,n)3He. The experiment was performed
Fusion Energy Output Greater than the Kinetic Energy of an Imploding Shell at the National Ignition Facility.
TLDR
Time dependent low mode asymmetries that limited further progress of implosions have now been controlled, leading to an increased compression of the hot spot, resulting in hot spot areal density and stagnation pressure never before achieved in a laboratory experiment.
Temperature measurements of fusion plasmas produced by Petawatt-Laser-Irradiated D2 - (3)He or CD4 - (3)He clustering gases.
TLDR
The temperatures determined by these two methods agree well, which indicates that (i) the ion energy distribution is not significantly distorted when ions travel in the disassembling plasma; and (ii) the kinetic energy of deuterium ions, especially the "hottest part" responsible for nuclear fusion, is well described by a near-Maxwellian distribution.
Selective deuterium ion acceleration using the Vulcan petawatt laser
We report on the successful demonstration of selective acceleration of deuterium ions by target-normal sheath acceleration (TNSA) with a high-energy petawatt laser. TNSA typically produces a
High-adiabat high-foot inertial confinement fusion implosion experiments on the national ignition facility.
This Letter reports on a series of high-adiabat implosions of cryogenic layered deuterium-tritium (DT) capsules indirectly driven by a "high-foot" laser drive pulse at the National Ignition Facility.
Measurement of the 2 H(d ,p ) 3 H reaction at astrophysical energies via the Trojan-horse method
The study of d(d,p)t reaction is very important for the nucleosynthesis in both standard Big Bang and stellar evolution, as well as for the future fusion reactors planning of energy production. The

Inertial Confinement Fusion is a promising option to provide massive, clean, and affordable energy for humanity in the future. The present status of research and development is hindered by
Fast heating of ultrahigh-density plasma as a step towards laser fusion ignition
TLDR
This work combines production of compressed matter in a laser-driven implosion with picosecond-fast heating by a laser pulse timed to coincide with the peak compression, allowing efficient compression and heating to be carried out simultaneously, providing a route to efficient fusion energy production.
Colliding beam fusion reactor
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how to avoid anomalous transport and thus solve the major problems of Tokamak reactors: size, the production of 14-megaelectron volt neutrons, and maintenance.
