Significant progress in direct-drive inertial confinement fusion ͑ICF͒ research has been made since the completion of the 60-beam, 30-kJ UV OMEGA Laser System ͓Boehly, Opt. Commun. 133, 495 ͑1997͔͒ in 1995. A theory of ignition requirements, applicable to any ICF concept, has been developed. Detailed understanding of laser-plasma coupling, electron thermal transport, and hot-electron preheating has lead to the measurement of neutron-averaged areal densities of ϳ200 mg/ cm 2 in cryogenic targetdoi:10.1364/fio.2004.ftun1 fatcat:sbifqvmldvd7hmd24qiotenafi
