Paper Abstract

Future multibeam laser-fusion experiments will require that beam powers be determined with better than 5% precision over a range approaching 40 to 1. In this paper, statistical, dispersive, and nonlinear factors which most influence such measurements are discussed. We conclude that such measurements can be made with 30-ps temporal resolution using optical streak cameras.
