Paper Abstract

An exhaustive set of Beamlet and Nova laser system simulations were performed over a wide range of power levels in order to gain understanding about the statistical trends in Nova and Beamlet's experimental data sets, and to provide critical validation of propagation tools and design `rules' applied to the 192-arm National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
