Abstract
The Shiva laser system is part of a new 20 terawatt laser facility at Lawrence Livermore Laboratory.. The system contains more than $5,000,000 worth of optics. This paper discusses the various optical components, typical-component quantities and specification, and the problem of laser damage to components.
