Cleanliness improvements of NIF (National Ignition Facility) amplifiers as compared to previous large-scale lasers

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Prior to the recent commissioning of the first NIF (National Ignition Facility) beamline, full-scale laser-amplifier-glass cleanliness experiments were performed. Aerosol measurements and obscuration data acquired using a modified flatbed scanner compare favorably to historical large-scale lasers and indicate that NIF is the cleanest large-scale laser built to date.
