Investigation into High-Throughput Plastic Inertial Confinement Fusion Target Capsule Fabrication Using Volumetric Additive Manufacturing

Martin De Beer | 23-FS-050

Executive Summary

This work will evaluate the feasibilty, including throughput and accuracy limits, of using laser-based volumetric additive manufacturing for the fabrication of plastic inertial confinement target capsules. High-throughput fabrication of target capsules would contribute to a viable pathway for inertial confinement fusion in energy generation.
