Title Neutron measurements and diagnostic developments relevant to fast ignition
Abstract In recent fast ignitor research, neutron measurements have become increasingly important not only to understand the ultraintense laser-plasma interaction physics associated with ion acceleration and energy transport processes in dense plasmas but also the characterization of the plasma temperature in integrated experiments, as summarized in this paper: New technologies that are relevant to the next-generation integrated fast ignition experiments are also reviewed. These will become increasingly important in the next few years as second-generation multikilojoule petawatt facilities come online and the detection environment becomes increasingly hostile, particularly if, as anticipated, the generated neutron fluxes begin to approach energy breakeven conditions.
