Abstract

An apparatus to produce layers of liquid and/or solid deuteriumtritium inside glass and polymer hollow spherical pellets is described. Such pellets have been used as cryogenic targets in neutron-producing experiments with the KMSF Nd:glass laser. Extensive experiments under cryogenic conditions were performed to determine the state and form of the thermonuclear fuel at the moment of arrival of the laser pulse in target-interaction experiments.

Variations of this class of laser fusion targets and other advanced targets are described.
