Paper Abstract

Every summer in the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, students are brought in to gain interesting research and development experience. In this work, we will review some case studies of past research experiences with students inside and outside NIF, that led to successful journal and conference publications. Several of these works will be reviewed to demonstrate how problems were chosen and defined so that meaningful results could be obtained within a limited time frame. It is anticipated that success with such projects will go a long way in motivating students in their future graduate career. Projects from laser measurement, optical computing and application of matched filtering in laser beam alignment will be reviewed to demonstrate this approach.
