Paper Abstract

To achieve high compression of direct drive targets it is principally important to guarantee highly homogeneous illumination of the target. Compressions of approximately 104 require degree of homogeneity of 1 - 2%. It is suggested that in the high-power laser facilities being developed and projected now (Omega Upgrade, NIF, LMJ, Iskra- 6) various methods of intensity distribution smoothing will be used to achieve such homogeneity. In this report the efficiency of some smoothing methods is considered using 1D numerical modeling.
