Development system performance issues of the NIF master oscillator and pulse forming networking

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A crucial step in the development of a complex laser system is initial testing of an integrated system. Issues arise at the system level which are not easily observed in component level testing. The NIF master oscillator room (MOR) contains a network of fiber and integrated optic components which can interact, potentially reducing system performance. Here we present some of the system problems we have seen in integrated tests and our solutions. Issues include ASE in the fiber amplifiers, filtering effects in the PM fiber, and regulation of average optical power.
