14. Beam bending could in principle be modeled outside of lasertram by altering the pointings in the view factor code. Since beam bending can be thought as cross-beam transfer between different parts of a quad due to the nozzle-like LEH plasma flow, the most extreme bending could be half the f-number of a quad, which corresponds to adding 3.7° to each quad trajectory. View factor calculations with this case altered the ratio of the second Legendre mode to the mean capsule flux by 2% [Δ(P2/P0) = 2%]; higher modes are affected less due to hohlraum smoothing.

Achieving symmetric hohlraum radiation drive is an important aspect of indirectly driven inertial confinement fusion experiments. However, when experimentally delivered laser powers deviate from ideal conditions, the resultant radiation field can become asymmetric. Two situations in which this may arise are random uncorrelated fluctuations, in as-delivered laser power and laser beams that do not participate in the implosion (either intentionally or unintentionally). Furthermore, laser plasma interactions in the hohlraum obfuscate the connection between laser powers and radiation drive. To study the effect of these situations on drive symmetry, we develop a simplified model for crossed-beam energy transfer, laser backscatter, and plasma absorption that can be used in conjunction with view factor calculations to expediently translate laser powers into three-dimensional capsule flux symmetries. We find that crossed-beam energy transfer can alter both the statistical properties of uncorrelated laser fluctuations and the impact of missing laser beams on radiation symmetry. A method is proposed to mitigate the effects of missing laser beams.
