Abstract
Laser absorption in inertial confinement fusion plasma has been theoretically studied with assumed high powered lasers using Maxwell's equations for inverse bremsstrahlung absorption process with two sets of density profiles, namely linear and exponential. It is found that the shorter wavelength with small pulse time and high irradiance of laser is required to interact with low atomic number target in inertial confinement fusion scheme.
