The continuation of HIPER – the HIPER Plus project
Proposal for a new ‘direct-drive’ laser-fusion programme in the EU
The aim of this consortium under creation is to prompt the European laser-fusion community to rejuvenate the enthusiasm that spawned the pioneering ‘HIPER‘ project, and to work together to set the building blocks of a new related EU project.
Our initiative is timely also because of the very encouraging results obtained at the NIF facility in the US, where a recent laser fusion experiment nearly reached the ignition threshold (read the news here)
