Abstract: Calculational results are presented from an extensive study of the hydro-burn response of bare DT shells, inert shells, and DT-filled micro-balloons to ramp-like, Gaussian, and square laser pulses. Scaling laws are determined for the best pulse energy and time scale for shells, as functions of their mass, aspect ratio and initial density. The advantages of DT ice over DT gas in the microballoons are demonstrated. An equivalence rule is established between linear ramp pulses and Gaussians, and a connection is …
