Executive Summary

We are exploring novel additively manufactured templates for incorporating engineered, ultralow-density porous materials (i.e., photoresists) into high-power laser targets, thus greatly improving the reproducibility of laser-target fabrication. These materials are expected to enable innovative technologies in laser fusion energy, energy storage and conversion, catalysis, and nuclear stockpile stewardship science.
