Utility of the National Ignition Facility for inertial fusion energy and radiation sciences experiments

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

NIF is being configured so as to not preclude conduct of radiation experiments that will contribute to evaluating the readiness of military systems and components to withstand radiation environments. The range of possible experimental environments and the flexibility to introduce various types of experimental packages suggests synergism with experiments related to Inertial Fusion Energy development on NIF. Design status of NIF features to support radiation experiments is described, and a relationship to their applicability to IFE experimentation on NIF is discussed.
