National Hi-Tech Inertial Confinement Fusion Committee, Office Address: PO Box 8009-55, Beijing 100088, China

The goal of the first milestone of the inertial confinement fusion (ICF) program in China is fusion ignition and plasma burning in about 2020. Under the program, in the past years, the target physics research achieved great progress; SG-II has been operating with high quality since 2000 and SG-III prototype began operating in 2005, and the support technologies for laser drivers are developed and improved; precise diagnostic techniques are developed and relatively integrated system is set up; precise target fabrications are coordinately developed.
