Abstract

MeV low-Z ions are expected to find application in starting ignition in high gain ICF targets. Quite stringent conditions in terms of power density and total energy are required to start fast ignition in a pre-compressed fuel by light-ion beams, this setting corresponding constraints on the design of adequate sources. In this paper are reported studies performed at ENEA (theory and experiments) on an ion source possibly suitable for fast ignition or entropy injection. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.
