Paper Abstract

One proposed capsule design for the Laser Megajoule facility is analyzed to determine surface finish specifications required to achieve ignition and propagated burn. We estimate the sensitivity of this capsule to hydrodynamic instabilities by means of direct two-dimensional simulations. Configuring multimode perturbations located at the DT ice and ablator surfaces, the fusion yield is predicted.
