Paper Abstract

A system to determine the relative time of arrival of intense, subnanosecond, CO2 laser pulses on a fusion target is described. It is now installed on the Helios CO2 laser system, a 10 kJ, 20 TW, eight-beam CO2 facility. This beam simultaneity system is inexpensive, easy to use, and has a resolution of less than ± 5 ps.
