US Citizen Deadline: October 2, 2012


Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory is home to the National Ignition Facility (NIF). NIF is a national resource — a unique experimental facility addressing compelling national security, energy, and science missions.

NIF's 192 powerful laser beams, housed in a 10-story building the size of three football fields, can deliver nearly 2 million joules of ultraviolet laser energy in billionth-of-a-second pulses to the target chamber center.

NIF was featured in a BBC broadcast on fusion. Check out other videos on NIF.

Don't miss this highlight tour of the National Ignition Facility. The tour will be held on Friday November 9, 2012, the day after the workshop. To sign-up for the optional NIF Tour, please contact:
