Paper Abstract

Laser ignition of fusion (LIF) of light nuclei for fusion reactions for producing energy (LIFE) by using very powerful laser pulses with duration in the range of picoseconds is the aim of fast ignition where HiPER is one of the options. Special attention is given to the ultrahigh acceleration of plasma blocks about which option results are reported including an alternative scheme for avoiding lateral energy losses. Examples of relativistic accelerations are evaluated for HiPER and LIFE applications.
