On the Use of a Pulsed Nuclear Thermal Rocket for Interplanetary Travel | 52nd AIAA/SAE/ASEE Joint Propulsion Conference
Fission pulses do neutron heating of hydrogen propellant to plasma conditions, but you need to liquid metal cool the fuel. Neat result is propellant can get hotter than the fuel due to neutron flux. Though a NTER strikes me as easier to implement...

Nuclear salt-water rocket - Wikiwand
A nuclear salt-water rocket is a theoretical type of nuclear thermal rocket which was designed by Robert Zubrin.[1] In place of traditional chemical propellant, such as that in a chemical rocket, the rocket would be fueled by salts of plutonium or 20 percent enriched uranium. The solution would be contained in a bundle of pipes coated in boron carbide . Through a combination of the coating and space between the pipes, the contents would not reach critical mass until the solution is p...

FALCON reactor-pumped laser description and program overview (Conference) | SciTech Connect
This is circa 1989-1991, and seems to feel a single laser/reactor complex can get to 100MW and have higher efficiency. Though beam quality will be an issue due to gas gain medium.
