Abstract

A conceptual design for a laser fusion experimental reactor (LIFT) based on fast ignition and the construction scenario are discussed. The LIFT project consists of 3 phases to 1) demonstrate repetitive fusion burns, 2) generation of electric power and 3) production of tritium and material test, respectively. The critical issues in each phase are tumbling of an injected target and dumping of stirred laser beams in the phase 1, safety in the phase 2 and life of final optics in the phase 3.
