Paper Abstract

Nova is a 100 TW Nd++ solid state laser designed for experiments with laser fusion at LLNL. The pulsed power for Nova includes a 58 MJ capacitor bank driving 5336 flashlamps with millisecond pulses and subnanosecond high voltages for electro optics. This paper summarizes the pulsed power designs and the operational experience to date.
