Paper Abstract

The Inertial Confinement Fusion has remarkably developed in these 30 years. In the 21st century we can scope the fusion energy for the civil use. After the cold war era, the value of ICF has shifted from the defense demand to the peaceful applications year by ear. The MJ laser systems are under construction expecting the ignition. However there are many problems in science and technology. The alternative way to use a PW short pule laser is aiming the fast ignition. On the way to the goal, we should contribute the various applications of high power lasers such as laboratory astrophysics, x-ray lasers, laser induced thunder and so on.
