In heavy ion beam (HIB) inertial confinement fusion (ICF), key issues include beam illumination non-uniformity. In this study we simulate the HIB interaction with a direct-driven target. The main purposes of this study are to clarify the multi-HIB energy deposition non-uniformity onto a direct-driven target and to calculate the target hydrodynamics in HIF. The calculation results demonstrate that we can realize a rather low non-uniform energy deposition, for example, less than 2.0% even for a 32-HIBs irradiation system.
