Rep. Prog. , 67, 321, 2004, figure 8. 4 g/cm2 is twice larger than the high-gain fuel radius, where rR > 2 g/cm2. This means that the total mass of the fast-ignition high-gain core is about 10 times smaller than that of the central spark core. In other words, the required implosion laser energy can be 10 times smaller in the fast-ignition case. Therefore, the fast-ignition fusion reactor can be small and allows the freedom of choosing the output power and driver efficiency. Although shortpulse laser–plasma interactions have been widely investigated, imploded plasma heating mechanisms are still an open question.

In the CSI scheme, for example, the igniting hot spot is formed at the end of implosion of the main fuel shell surrounding the central hot spot, the plasma configuration of which is isobaric (Meyer-ter-Vehn, 1982). In this scheme, Ts ≈ 5 keV has been used as a typical number (Meyer-ter-Vehn, 1982; Lindl, 1998). Meanwhile, in the FI scheme, the ignitor is formed by rapidly heating the fuel, when it is at its maximum compressed (thus almost stagnated) state. 24 Schematic picture for the fuel configuration considered in the gain model, which corresponds to the maximum compression state of the main DT fuel.

In general, the RT instability is not generated as a single mode, but many modes grow simultaneously, finally inducing the turbulent mixing. The growth rate of the mixing layer thickness would be smaller than the linear growth rate due to the nonlinear saturation and the mode–mode coupling in the nonlinear phase. If one can manage to keep a spherically symmetric implosion, fire polishing by alpha particle heating can smooth the burning wave even with some level of nonuniform structure in the main fuel.
