Paper Abstract

Uniform illumination of spherical laser fusion targets requires the use of fast f-number multi-lens focusing systems. The University of Rochester Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) is presently in the design stages of a 24 beam Nd:glass laser system which will be used for fusion experiments. The target illumination system will consist of 24 multi-element f/1.6 lenses held in a symmetrical opposing beam geometry. This paper will summarize the results of a focusing system design study conducted by Itek Corporation for the University of Rochester, and further work performed at LLE.
