Radiation hydrodynamic simulations of ICF capsules assuming a kJ-class laser facility were conducted to evaluate the hydrodynamic stability of a brominated plastic shell. An opacity table based on a detailed atomic model was employed so that more quantitative forecast of the implosion dynamics could be performed. A lightly doped shell could form a high-density core at the maximum compression by suppressing the hydrodynamic instability.
