Main amplifier power conditioning for the National Ignition Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The National Ignition Facility (NIF), being built at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) will utilize a 18 MJ glass laser to study inertial confinement fusion This laser will be driven by a power conditioning system which must simultaneously deliver over 260 MJ of electrical energy to the nearly 7700 flashlamps The power conditioning system is divided into independent modules that store, shape and deliver pulses of energy to the flashlamps The NIF power conditioning system which is being designed and built by Sandia National Laboratory (SNL) in collaboration with LLNL and industrial partners, is a different architecture from any laser ... continued below
