What's New


OBJECTIVE

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.


SCOPE

The 1st Conference on Inertial Fusion Energy covers the following major topical fields:
Roadmaps for power plants and national projects across the world

Core plasma

Fuel targets Laser drivers Plant designs Economics, licensing, safety (including tritium control in plant) and environmental impact


SUBMISSION OF SUMMARY (closed)
