ON THE ENERGY GAIN OF D-T TARGETS FOR INERTIAL CONFINEMENT FUSION
A model for the computation of the minimum ignition energy and of the fuel gain of D-T targets which are isobaric at ignition is formulated, making use of the relevant ignition criterion. Scaling relations for the limiting gain curves as functions of the energy delivered to the fuel, the fuel mass, and the isotope parameter, are given and illustrated by several examples.
