Paper Abstract

The Laser Optical Train Simulation (LOTS) computer program was developed for the Los Alamos National Laboratory laser fusion program. LOTS was built to do end-to-end physical optics analysis of the laser train. LOTS uses a 64 x 64 computer array to describe the complex amplitude distribution of the laser beam. Calculations in LOTS consist of optics operations and data display of the laser beam array. LOTS models diffraction propagation, component aberration, apertures, nonlinear gain or absorption media, lenses and mirrors. It is designed for interactive use and has a user oriented command language which greatly facilitates learning to use the program and problem set-up time. LOTS has been used for a variety of projects since its first version in 1976. These projects include Helios, Antares, the free electron laser, and laser isotope separation at Los Alamos, and LODE and MRAT at the Air Force Weapons Laboratory.
