Abstract
A conically guided capsule directly driven by laser beams has been considered. The capsule is irradiated by 31 laser beams characterized by a super-Gaussian power profile. The implosion of the capsule is assumed perfectly spherical, neglecting any effect due to the inserted cone. A three-dimensional ray-tracing package has been developed to evaluate the direct irradiation of the external surface of the inserted cone as a function of time. For the laser-capsule configuration analyzed in this work, it is found that the surface of the cone initially located inside the capsule suffer the highest irradiation with a peak intensity as high as 3x10(14) W/cm(2).
