Abstract
The past several decades have witnessed major advances in high-power lasers. The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics awarded for Chirped-Pulse Amplification recognized the revolution underway in high-power lasers. The development in both peak- and average-power lasers has been motivated by the many applications in science, national security, and industry that such lasers enable. In this presentation, applications including laser accelerators, fusion and high-energy-density research,and directed-energy weapons that motivate their development and the status and a vision of the future of high-power lasers will be discussed. This material is based upon work supported by the Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration under Award Number DENA0003856, the University of Rochester, and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority. The support of DOE does not constitute an endorsement by DOE of the views expressed in this abstract.
