(previous CLIFE '12)
Institute of Laser Engineering, Osaka University
National Institute for Fusion Science
In cooperation with
April 25 (Wed.) - April 27 (Fri.), 2012
A demonstration of fusion ignition and burn by laser implosion will be achieved with a mega-joule laser at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2011-2012. This is the final step of a 50-year world-wide physical investigation into laser-matter interaction and fuel pellet implosion, and the development of engineering for a single-shot experiment.
We are ushering in a new era of laser inertial fusion energy, in which laser fusion power plants are developed to produce and utilize clean, safe energy in abundence for the society.of the future.
The objective of this international conference is to provide a forum to present and discuss technological aspects of the development of the laser fusion power plant.
The 1st Conference on Inertial Fusion Energy covers the following major topical fields:
Roadmaps for power plants and national projects across the world
Original papers that have not been previously presented and that describe new technical contributions in the areas covered by the technical descriptions above will be accepted for presentation.
Summaries should be submitted electronically,
no later than Dec. 20, 2011 no later than Jan. 20, 2012. (The deadline has been extended.)
Authors are requested to submit a summary written in English, that fits within a two page 17 cm x 24 cm template, including text, figures, tables, and references.
