Lindl, Inertial Confinement Fusion, Springer, New York, NY, USA, 1998.
Recommendation: To address the scientific and technical challenges and management weaknesses, and to enhance the NIC review committee's effectiveness, the Administrator of NNSA should direct the Director of the Office of Inertial Confinement Fusion and National Ignition Facility Project to ensure that the review committee adequately involves nuclear weapons scientists that can help evaluate whether NIC's approach is appropriate for creating a platform for future stockpile stewardship experiments.
Fusion energy research (and especially inertial confinement fusion machines like NIF) represent a foray into a realm of energy the world has not yet mastered.
The goal of the NIF project is to achieve ignition and significant energy gain for the first time in inertial confinement fusion. Current plans call for a laser system of 192 beams housed in a building the size of a football stadium.
In inertial confinement fusion, for example, lasers irradiate a tiny nuclear fuel pellet -- about 1 millimeter in diameter -- from all directions.
The Senate bill also maintains stable support for the overall Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) program at the U.S.
Edwards is cited "for your many scientific contributions and the managerial leadership you are providing to national and international research efforts on inertial confinement fusion and high energy density plasma physics" and noting especially "your leadership of the scientific program on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) for both high energy density physics and for the eventual achievement of ignition leading towards a commercial fusion power source".
DOE also received $217 million for inertial confinement fusion and $198 million to start constructing the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, the world's largest laser.
Earlier this year, this giant accelerator produced an ion bema of record intensity, an important milestone on the road to inertial confinement fusion. In this scheme, beams of energetic ions would irradiate fuel pellets containing the hydrogen isotopes deuterium and tritium.
Researchers in NNSAs Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) program create and measure extreme temperature, pressure, and radiation conditions to better understand how nuclear weapons would behave in various environments.
The report provides to NNSA's Inertial Confinement Fusion and High Yield Campaign $511.993 M which is $1.964 M below the FY 2014 appropriation, $0.902 M below the President's request.
