Abstract Code OK1 is a fast and precise three-dimensional computer program designed for simulations of heavy ion beam (HIB) irradiation on a direct-driven spherical fuel pellet in heavy ion fusion (HIF). OK1 provides computational capabilities of a three-dimensional energy deposition profile on a spherical fuel pellet and the HIB irradiation non-uniformity evaluation, which are valuables for optimizations of the beam parameters and the fuel pellet structure, as well for further HIF experiment design. ... Title of program: OK1 Catalogue Id: ADST_v1_0 Nature of problem Nuclear fusion energy may have attractive features as one of our human energy resources. In this paper we focus on heavy ion inertial confinement fusion (HIF). Due to a favorable energy deposition behavior of heavy ions in matter it is expected that heavy ion beam (HIB) would be one of the energy driver candidates to operate a future inertial confinement fusion power plant. For a successful fuel ignition and fusion energy release, a stringent requirement is imposed on the HIB irradiation non-uni ...
