Since C. Yamanaka et al. demonstrated that the best fusion gains from laser irradiated pellets result only when central shocks are avoided and an ideal volume compression is achieved, the problems o f the central (spark) ignition with necessary densities of 1000 times the solid state may be overcome. Based on an analytical formula of volume ignition, the new conditions should provide reactor adequate laser fusion with compression to 50 to 100 times solid state.
