Ultrahigh-density deuterium of Rydberg matter clusters for inertial confinement fusion targets

  • L. Holmlid (a1), H. Hora (a2), G. Miley (a3) and X. Yang (a3)

Clusters of condensed deuterium of densities up to 1029 cm−3 in pores in solid oxide crystals were confirmed from time-of-flight mass spectrometry measurements. Based on these facts, a schematic outline and possible conclusions of expectable generalizations are presented, which may lead to a simplification of laser driven fusion energy including new techniques for preparation of targets for application in experiments of the NIF type, but also for modified fast igniter experiments using proton or electron beams or side-on ignition of low compressed solid fusion fuel.
