15 May 1997 Concept of free-electron laser system for the laser fusion-reactor driver
Author Affiliations +
This paper presents the further development of a concept of a FEL based driver for commercial inertial confinement fusion reactor. We have shown technical feasibility of constructing a laser system with the following parameters: laser light wavelength 0.5 μm, flash energy 4 MJ, repetition rate 10 pps and net efficiency 10%. It becomes possible due to the use of a novel scheme of optical power summation.
