HiPER (High Power laser Energy Research) is the first European plan for international cooperation in developing inertial fusion energy. ICF activities are ongoing in a number of nations and the first ignition experiments are underway at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) in the USA. Although HiPER is still in the preparatory phase, it is appropriate for Europe to commence planning for future inertial fusion activities that leverage the demonstration of ignition. In this paper we shall detail some of the key points of the laser design and the way this design is connected to the capsule requirements.
