AbstractLaser indirect drive is hindered, in part, by two problems: “wall motion” resulting from ablation of the hohlraum inner wall and “preheat” of the fuel capsule. To mitigate wall motion and preheat, a mid-Z–coated high internal phase emulsion, poly(HIPE) foam liner (5.7-mm diameter, 150 μm thick, 2.8 mm long, 33 mg/cm3) was developed and integrated into the hohlraum interior. A zinc oxide coating was applied throughout the poly(HIPE) foam using atomic layer deposition to achieve 149 ± 14… CONTINUE READING
