17 January 1990 The Los Alamos Bright Sources: Review Of The Physics And The Diagnostic Technology
Author Affiliations +
The investigation of many interesting physical phenomena in nature requires the generation of high-energy-density fields. To produce energy densities exceeding 107 J/cm3 requires focusing a very powerful, very bright, short pulse laser. This talk will present a review of the physics that will be investigated with one such laser system, will describe the laser used, will describe the laser diagnostics, and will describe the physics diagnostics. The talk will emphasize the areas of research that will help the diagnostics of different aspects of these bright sources, and their interactions, especially the diagnostics of hot small volumes in picosecond time scales.
