Paper Abstract

We describe recent results and developments in the preamplifier module engineering prototype located in NIF's front end or Optical Pulse Generation system. This prototype uses the general laser design developed on a physics testbed and integrates NIF type packaging as well as controls and diagnostics. We will present laser, mechanical and electrical hardware designed and built to data as well as laser energetics measurements.
