Abstract
Over the past four years the technology involved in the construction of large, high power, short pulse CO2 laser/amplifier systems has advanced to the point where 10 kJ systems are currently in the construction phase and 100 kJ systems are being seriously considered for future development. The main emphasis of these machines has been toward laser-fusion studies. This application has led to many unique requirements on the laser systems themselves and to sophisticated interfacing problems and solutions between the laser devices and the fusion target devices. For these reasons, the problem of adequate IR diagnostic techniques and devices has been an important one and will continue to be so during the future development of the laser fusion program.
