You have to take into account the energy supplied by the lasers this is not free ! This is why it is no good as a power as a power source.
Why this enthusiasm for using NRI research machines for power generation the efficiency is about 0.01% and the fuel extremely expensive ?
30/25 > 1, so it's a net energy source, and potentially worth developing if you can harvest the surplus and use it to start another event. Slight problem that this is a pulse process rather than a continuous burn, but the internal combustion engine seems to have survived and still competes with turbines.
3.15 megajoules of energy from a 2.05 megajoule input of laser light for an energy gain of about 1.5. Charging the laser consumed "well above 400 megajoules
I see no future for pulse type nuclear fusion machines only for research
