Any articles on ICF fuel pellet?

  1. May 30, 2013 #1
    A graduate student I know swears that there is some form of carbon and that it is very expensive to make the fuel pellets, especially to make them smooth for the ablation process. I have read they are extremely cheap but I may be thinking of just the DT fuel and not the pellet. Either way, hohlraum or not is there an article that takes an in depth look at the ICF fuel?

    Have you looked through the LLNL website to see what they have for technical information resources for ICF?

    This page at LLNL's website looks to be helpful:

    https://lasers.llnl.gov/programs/nic/target_fabrication.php [Broken]

    BTW, I got to that page with a Google search on the word you used "hohlraum". :smile:
