Cryogenic 1-D Implosion Campaign

The purpose of the 1-D Cryogenic Implosion Campaign is to perform experiments that are close to 1-D behavior. This is done by imploding cryogenic DT-filled targets with a high adiabat (fluid pressure/Fermi pressure) to minimize the in-flight aspect ratio and the Rayleigh–Taylor (RT) growth at the ablation interface.

The neutron yield plotted versus the minimum ion temperature taken from the nTOF measurements is shown here.
