Abstract
The compression and the thermonuclear energy release in conic targets with additional laser heating are calculated. It is shown that irradiation of conic targets with a compound KrF laser pulse with energy 300-400 kJ can provide a neutron yield of >= 1016 per shot and, accordingly, target energy gain coefficients above 0.1. As a result, it is possible to create the high repetition rate thermonuclear neutron source with yield 1016-1017 per shot on the basis of UV-laser.
