Effects of a Fill Tube on the Performance of OMEGA Direct-Drive DT Cryogenic Implosions

The effects of a fill tube on the performance of direct-drive DT cryogenic implosions on the OMEGA laser were investigated in anticipation of the fill-tube target that will be deployed in 2020 for the 100-Gbar Campaign.

Summary of the measured neutron yield results with and without a fill tube added to the stalk-mounted DT cryogenic implosion target are shown here.
