Laser fusion target chamber design

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The SHIVA laser system, which is being built at LLL, consists of a 1.06 $mu$m master oscillator whose 100 picosecond output pulse is beam split into 20 laser amplifier chains, each outputting 1 terawatt for a total of 20 TW with optical aberration of $sup 1$/$sub 2$ wave. Before firing, the beams are automatically aimed at the target within 5 microradians and focused within 7 $mu$m. Computer calculations predict significant thermonuclear burn will be achieved with this system. (MOW)
