Analysis of thermal issues associated with the pre-amplifier modules in the National Ignition Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The design of the National Ignition Facility (NIF) calls for a desired temperature field of 20.00 {+-} 0.28 C throughout the facility. This design requirement is needed to prevent degradation of the operating performance and net yield of the NIF by heat loads generated within the facility. In particular, the potential interference of waste heat from the lighting fixtures and equipment such as the electronics racks, and pre-amplifier modules (PAMs), and its impact on the operational performance of the laser beam transport tubes and optical alignment components must be evaluated. This report describes the thermal analyses associated with the PAMs. ... continued below
