17 January 1990 Pulse-Shape Measurements On OMEGA

Direct-drive laser fusion targets require that the irradiation nonuniformity be in the range 1-2% σThis This implies that UV power imbalances between the 24 beamlines of the OMEGA laser system need to be measured to a precision of order 1%, i.e., the system signal-to-noise ratio must be in excess of a few hundred. In this paper we report on the feasibility of making such measurements with a 24-channel streak-camera system.
