International Conference on Inertial Fusion Sciences and Applications 2023

September 25-29, 2023 | Denver, CO, USA

JOIN US

The 12th International Conference on Inertial Fusion Sciences and Applications continues to bring scientists and engineers together in the fields of inertial fusion sciences, high-energy-density physics, and inertial fusion energy research. This will be the first major in-person conference focused on inertial confinement fusion since the recent achievements of the National Ignition Facility. The conference will include a strong emphasis on the new and growing private fusion industry including a dedicated session of plenary talks focused on this expanding segment of our community and a panel discussion. These topics offer exciting opportunities and challenges to the research community and will make for inspiring discussions during the
conference.


The following topics will be covered by this meeting:
  • Inertial Fusion Science 
  • High Energy Density Science
  • Z-pinch Physics
  • Heavy Ion Beam Physics
  • Laser-plasma Interactions
  • Hohlraum Energetics
  • Plasma Nuclear Science (incl. neutron generation & applications, transmutation, and nuclear physics
  • Plasma Photonics
  • Heavy Ion Beam Accelerator Technology
  • Hydrodynamics (incl. equation of states, instabilities, etc.)
  • Atomic Physics (incl. radiation transport, opacity, etc.)
  • High-energy and/or short-pulse laser technology
  • Pulsed Power Technology
  • Laboratory Astrophysics
  • Particle Generation and Applications
  • Radiation Sources and Applications
  • Fusion Target Fabrication
This will be the first in-person meeting of this series since 2019. The IFSA conference rotates across Europe, Japan, and the USA every two years. 2021 being the pandemic year the conference was effectively cancelled, but we held three virtual talks instead.

Awards

Edward Teller Medal

This medal is given in recognition of pioneering research and leadership in the use of high intensity drivers (e.g. lasers, ion-particle beams, pulsed power) to produce unique high-density matter for scientific research and to conduct investigations of inertial fusion.

Edouard Fabre Prize

The prize has been established by the European COST Action MP1208 “Developing the physics and the scientific community for Inertial Confinement Fusion” in 2014 to commemorate one of the founders of the directly-driven Inertial Confinement Fusion for Energy studies in Europe. It is rewarding active researchers at mid-career (within 15 years of the doctoral degree) working on ICF-related topics.

Chiyoe Yamanaka Award

The Yamanaka award (formerly the IFSA student prize) is given to six presenters and is sponsored by IFE Forum, Japan.
