Description

In preparation for ignition on the National Ignition Facility, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory� s Inertial Confinement Fusion Program, working in collaboration with Los Alamos National Laboratory, Commissariat a 1� Energie Atomique (CEA), and Laboratory for Laser Energetics at the University of Rochester, has performed a broad range of experiments on the Nova and Omega lasers to test the fundamentals of the NIF target designs. These studies have refined our understanding of the important target physics, and have led to many of the specifications for the NIF laser and the cryogenic ignition targets. Our recent work has been focused in ... continued below
