Paper Abstract

Review of recent results on direct ignition of ICF targets are presented. Main attention is focused on the second stage of direct ignition-heating of preliminary compressed thermonuclear fuel and burning wave initiation in it by the action of igniting driver pulse. There are discussed the main features of the direct ignition of ICF target by the initiating drivers of perspective types, such as fast electron beam of laser-produced plasma, light ion beam of laser produced plasma, heavy ion beam from accelerator, X-ray pulse and accelerated macroparticle.
