Information on the NIF User Facility
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) and Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) User Groups will host a joint meeting Monday, February 3, 2020 through Wednesday, February 5, 2020, at the Bella Rosa Event Center in Livermore, CA. The meeting will describe NIF’s and JLF’s capabilities to current and potential users and will include presentations about capabilities and highlights from recent experiments.
The 192-beam NIF is the world’s most energetic inertial confinement fusion (ICF) facility. The NIF lasers’ unprecedented power, precision, and reproducibility, coupled with an ever-expanding suite of diagnostics and sophisticated target fabrication capability, enable a wide range of leading-edge scientific experiments. Groundbreaking experiments in areas such as materials science, nucleosynthesis, and astrophysical shocks have been conducted.
