This overview of Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) and High-Energy-Density (HED) science, highlights MIT’s High-Energy-Density Division work at two major US ICF facilities: Omega and the NIF. MIT’s work at these facilities is based on design and implementation of novel diagnostics, platforms, and analyses, developed at the PSFC accelerator facility.
