Ed Moses plenary presentation

31 January 2010, SPIE Newsroom. DOI: 10.1117/2.3201102.18

Ed Moses has 18 years of experience developing Department of Energy/National Nuclear Security Administration (DOE/NNSA) laser systems and 30 years of experience developing and managing complex laser systems and high-technology projects. AS associate director (AD) for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) Program from 2005 to 2007, he was responsible for completing construction and bringing into full operation the world's largest optical instrument for achieving ignitionin the laboratory and for studying inertial fusion energy. He has been instrumental in sustaining the program's current strong performance. Moses joined Lawrence Livermore in 1980, becoming program leader for Isotope Separation and Material Processing, and deputy AD for lasers. From 1990-1995, he was a founding partner of Advanced Technology Applications, which advised clients on proposing on and designing high-technology projects. He returned to LLNL in 1995 as assistant AD for program development, degree and doctorate from Cornell University in New York. He has won numerous awards, including the 2003 NNSA Award of Excellence for Significant Contribution to Stockpile Stewardship, the 2004 DOE Award for Excellence for the first joint LLNL/Los Alamos National Laboratory experiments on NIF, and the D.S. Rozhdestvensky Medal for Outstanding Contributions to Lasers and Optical Sciences. He holds seven patents in laser technology and computational physics.
