New results of the jet driven ignition target are presented, both with direct and indirect drive.
This target is based on the conical guided target used in fast ignition, but use only one laser pulse.
The ignition of the target is started by the impact of a jet produced in the guiding cone, instead of using charged particles generated by a other high power laser.
We have shown that a laser or X-ray pulse could be used to produce a high velocity jet of several hundred of km-s by an accumulative effect, and we use these ideas to design this new kind of targets.
In order to increase the efficiency of the process, we scan in the simulations different materials, cone profiles and laser intensities.
ANALOP is a code developed to calculate opacities for hot plasmas, using analytical potentials including density and temperature effects.
It has been recently updated to include the radiative transport into the rate equations by mean of the escape factors, and in parallel a line transport code which solve self-consistently the rate equation and radiative transfer equation in 1D planar geometry has been also d...
