The 16th Direct Drive and Fast Ignition Workshop continues a series of meetings dedicated to inertial confinement research in Europe. DDFIW provides a unique opportunity for European and oversea scientists working in theory, simulations and experiments to present and discuss their latest results and future plans in an informal atmosphere. The meeting also addresses new schemes for inertial confinement fusion and related science at the cutting edge of high energy density physics research.
Representatives of leading laser user facilities will illustrate the opportunities for new experiments, in particular the upcoming P3-L4n beamline at ELI, which is expected to play an important role in future ICF and HEDP research, expected to go online end 2020.
During the workshop there will be the opportunity to visit the ELI-Beamlines installations.
A satellite one-day workshop on electromagnetic pulses (EMPs) will take place on April 9 and continue the previous workshops which took place in Bordeaux (2016), Warsaw (2017) and Frascati (2018).
