Paper Abstract

The OMEGA laser irradiation facility consists of a 24 arm Neodymium glass laser coupled to a spherical target irradiation chamber. A computer network is connected to the laser and target systems through a control room where operators can access any of the devices or subsystems within the facility. The facility is designed to produce 12 terawatt laser pulses and irradiate various materials to study laser-matter interactions at extremely high peak power. The system is capable of sustaining one target shot every 30 minutes.
