Executive Summary

We are developing and evaluating conceptual designs of short-pulse laser system architectures for three different kilowatt power levels (3, 30, and 300), which could serve as future high-average-power, high-energy petawatt systems. Such systems support national efforts in inertial confinement fusion.
