    Cryogenic target assembly

    A target assembler shown attaching an 865-µm-diam capsule to a 17-µm-diam silicon-carbide fiber. The target will then be processed in the Cryogenic Target Handling System.

    PD implosions

    Polar drive (PD) is being developed by LLE to demonstrate direct-drive ignition on the NIF. One potential means of improving the drive uniformity with PD is to employ "shimmed targets"—targets whose thickness varies as a function of angle. Shown in the photograph above are framing-camera x-ray backlit images of a shimmed PD target implosion demonstrating its inherent drive uniformity.
