Abstract
About to start the construction of an engineering facility for repetitive laser operation (HiPER 4a), and later a fusion reactor (HiPER 4b), the lifetime of the lenses in the final optic is one of the key in the European laser fusion project. At the moment, it is based on silica transmission lenses located 8 m away from the chamber center. The lenses must be support the extreme conditions in the reactor and its durability depends on the irradiation effects. We have used a 48 MJ shock ignition target for calculations. Then, we have studied the thermo-mechanical effects of ions and X-rays on the lenses. Calculations show that simultaneous neutron and gamma irradiation does not significantly increase the optical absorption during the expected lifetime of the HiPER 4a facility.
