Description: The Laser Fusion Program at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory is presently emerging from a three-year period of intensive development of the tools required for significant DT implosion experiments of continuously increasing scale. These diverse tools include target design codes, sophisticated target fabrication techniques, radically new diagnostics instrumentation, high peak- power-high brightness laser technology, and fully integrated laser-target- diagnostic irradiation facilities. These tools have recently led to the successful production of neutrons from compressed DT-containing targets together with a wealth of correlating plasma physics data. The current status of major program activities at LLL will be reviewed and major future milestones will be projected. (auth)
