ICF simulations were carried out with the amplitude of perturbations from spherical symmetry treated as a free parameter with the aim of reproducing experimentally observed yields. The simulations began at peak velocity and multi-wavelength perturbations were imposed in the velocity field. It was found that increasing the perturbation caused the gamma bang time to lag behind the xray bang time. Fluid motion broadening of the neutron spectrum was also examined. The effect of perturbation amplitude on alpha particle losses was investigated.
