Fast Ignition is recognized as the most promising approach to achieving the high energy gain target performance needed for commercial inertial confinement fusion (ICF). However, there are a number of physics issues related to the traditional approach of using a petawatt laser to generate a relativistic electron beam that should penetrate
and focus on the hot “spark” region of the compressed target. One promising alternate approach that has been proposedby researchers at LLNL and LANL is the laser generation of a proton beam in an “interaction foil” to ignite the target.
