Paper Abstract

To meet the future requirements of the AWE plasma physics program, design studies are being conducted for a 100 TW Nd doped glass laser system converted to the third harmonic. The baseline design of the proposed system will be presented. The AWE laser is based on technology developments for the US National Ignition Facility (NIF). The proposal is for a 32 beam laser system which is a sub-set of the 192 beam NIF.
