Sketch of the capsule and of the re-entrant cone. Polar angle and the azimuthal angle that characterize the direction of a laser beam are also shown.
Temporal evolution of the inner shell radius and of the ablation front . The shadowed area indicates the incident pulse power. The maximum of the density and of the areal mass density as a function of time are shown in the inset.
Azimuthal angles and polar angles that define the directions of the 31 laser beams. The position of the re-entrant cone is indicated by the shadowed area.
Trajectories of a few selected ray paths representative of a beam of the first and fifth ring are shown. The position of the initial radius of the capsule has been indicated by the circular dashed line.
Energy fluency onto the cone surface as a function of the distance from the capsule center. The lines labeled with correspond to the contribution of each of the six rings.
Laser intensity incident onto the cone surface as a function of the distance from the capsule center and of the time. (a) Irradiation provided by all the 31 beams and (b) switching off the five beams of the first ring. The vertical dashed lines indicate the position of the initial radius of the capsule. The total energy fluencies are indicated by the white lines as a function of .
