- This study parametrically examines the implications on inertial-fusion-reactor design of the use of direct-drive pellets as an alternative to the radiation-driven targets. We have examined the impacts of direct illumination on mirror damage constraints, reactor neutronic performance, and system energetics and cost. The capital costs for low f/number, direct-illumination-driven inertial-fusion power plants are required to be significantly less than those for the radiation-driven or high f/number direct-illumination-driven power plants to produce electricity at the same cost.
