Role of the NIF in the development of ICF applications

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a 1.8 MJ (at 351 nm), 192 beam laser facility being built at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) to achieve inertial fusion ignition in the laboratory. The NIF Project is being designed and built by a team from LLNL, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and the University of Rochester. When completed in 2003, it will be a multipurpose facility that will be used for many applications in national security, energy, and the basic sciences. In addition to the National Security Mission, these applications include, for example, electric power generation, space propulsion, ... continued below

The NIF Project is being designed and built by a team from LLNL, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratory, and the University of Rochester. When completed in 2003, it will be a multipurpose facility that will be used for many applications in national security, energy, and the basic sciences. In addition to the National Security Mission, these applications include, for example, electric power generation, space propulsion, and study of basic astrophysical phenomena in the laboratory. Such applications receive benefit both through the state- of-the-art technology developments necessary to build NIF and through specific experiments that will be performed on NIF.
