T'aurais une autre source car je ne trouve strictement rien de corroborant sur internet.
là : bonne lecture :)
All observers note that the functionality ofthe laser; the quality of the diagnostics, optics and
targets; and the operations by the NIC and NIF teams have all been outstanding. By comparison
with the startup of other large science facilities, the commissioning and startup of experimental
operation on NIF has demonstrated an "unprecedented level of quality and accomplishment"
according to one reviewer. Experiments on capsule compression, with improved diagnostic
detail and exquisite laser pulse shape and energy control, have provided important insights into
the details of the ignition capsule compression.
The integrated conclusion based on this extensive period of experimentation, however, is that
considerable hurdles must be overcome to reach ignition or the goal of observing unequivocal
alpha heating. Indeed the reviewers note that given the unknowns with the present "semiempirical" approach, the probability of ignition before the end of December is extremely low and
even the goal of demonstrating unambiguous alpha heating is challenging.
