Abstract
Prior to the recent commissioning of the first National Ignition Facility (NIF) beamline, full-scale laser-amplifier-glass cleanliness experiments are performed. Aerosol measurements and obscuration data acquired using a modified flatbed scanner compare favorably to historical large-scale lasers and indicate that NIF is the cleanest large-scale laser built to date.
