Inertial Confinement Fusion
Chapter 8 represented a turning point in our discussion. The earlier chapters were focused on the physical fundamentals of high-energy-density physics. Chapter 8 showed how we could create such conditions, which in turn makes possible the application of high-energy-density systems to the pursuit of various goals. This and the next chapter are much more focused on these goals. The goal that has been and remains dominant in high-energy-density research is the development of inertial confinement fusion, or ICF. This is our topic in the present chapter.
