Abstract
We describe the Optical Pulse Generation (OPG) testbed, which is the integration of the MOD and Preamplifier Development Laboratories. We use this OPG testbed to develop and demonstrates the overall capabilities of the NIF laser system front end. We will present the measured energy and power output, temporal and spatial pulse shaping capability, FM bandwidth and dispersion for beam smoothing, and measurements of the pulse-to-pulse power variation o the OPG system and compare these results with the required system performance specifications. We will discus the models that are used to predict the system performance and how the OPG output requirements flowdown to the subordinate subsystems within the OPG system.
