Paper Abstract

High peak power rare gas halide lasers for applications in Inertial Confinement Fusion are being developed at laboratories across the world. The United States Department of Energy sponsors a program conducted at the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Naval Research Laboratory. The Los Alamos laser development program is composed of three major elements; the Aurora Laser Facility is a 1 terawatt KrF laser designed as an integrated performance demonstration of a target qualified excimer laser system; an advanced design effort evaluates concepts that offer the improved performance and lower cost that will be essential for the construction of future lasers in the 0.5 to 10 MJ class; and a laser technology program that addresses both performance and cost issues that will be important in advanced laser system designs.
