Paper Abstract

Of the two principal areas in which laser and nuclear technology may interact - laser-induced fusion and nuclear-pumped lasers - this paper concerns the latter. The concept involves direct conversion of fission energy, mostly kinetic energy of charged particles (fission fragments), into coherent radiation of optical frequencies. Papers dealing with this subject began to appear around 1961. A review of this earlier work is given in Reference (1).
