NIF User Group Meeting 2012

About the NIF User Group Meeting

The 192-beam National Ignition Facility (NIF), the most energetic inertial confinement fusion (ICF) facility in the world, is now operational. The NIF laser's unprecedented power, precision, and reproducibility, coupled with over 50 available diagnostics and sophisticated target fabrication capability, enable a wide range of leading edge scientific experiments. Initial experiments in areas such as materials science, nucleosynthesis, and supernova hydrodynamics have been conducted.

To provide further information regarding scientific opportunities at NIF, a meeting of the NIF User Group was held Sunday, February 12th, 2012, through Wednesday, February 15th, at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The meeting described NIF's capabilities to current and potential users and included presentations regarding NIF experiments and related research at other facilities.
