Abstract

After the invention of the laser in 1960, laser fusion research began in several countries. In early days, laser-plasma interactions were principally studied. Absorption physics was a target for keen interest. In 1972 the laser implosion concept was publicly disclosed. Since then, inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research has progressed remarkably to compete with magnetic confinement fusion.
