Abstract

The inertial confinement fusion (ICF) research has remarkably developed in the last 10 years, which enables us to scope the fusion ignition and burn in the near future. Following the recent progress in the ICF, the perspectives of the inertial fusion energy (IFE) are presented. International collaboration is highly expected.
