Plasma Amplifiers to Enable Dramatic Increases in Laser Power and Energy to Access New Physical Processes

Patrick Poole | 19-DR-011

Executive Summary

We are developing plasma-based optics that manipulate and combine laser beams to achieve record levels of energy, power, and intensity. This game-changing technology could enable new regimes of study on the National Ignition Facility and advance US laser capabilities beyond current next-generation designs.
