Paper Abstract

We review development in the repetition-rate target area systems and technologies within the Work Package 15 of the HiPER Preparatory Phase project. The activities carried out in 2009-2010 have been involving analysis of solutions and baseline design of major elements of the repetition-rated fusion chamber, analysis of prospective injector technologies, numerical modelling of target survival during acceleration phase and during flight in the environment of fusion chamber, analysis of options of remote handling, systems of mitigation of fusion debris, and others. The suggested solutions assume operation at the repetition rate of 10 Hz and fusion yield between 20 and 100 MJ. Shock ignition is assumed as the baseline ignition scenario, although some technologies are applicable in the fast ignition; a number of the technologies identified are exploitable as well in the indirect drive. The operation of the HiPER repetition-rate chamber will contribute to technology development for the Demonstration Reactor HiPER facility.
