    Laserfiche is a great system for organizing a large amount of documents. The ideal organization that would use Laserfiche would be someone who has many documents that they want to be searchable and stored digitally. Laserfiche is amazing when it comes to governments and complying with public record retention schedules/10(64). The NIF laser system uses about large plates of laser glass. Each glass plate is about three feet long and about half as wide. If stacked end-to-end, the plates would form a con-tinuous ribbon of glass nearly two miles long. To produce this laser glass, we use a new production method developed by twoFile Size: KB.

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the laser designed and built to meet the challenges for study of high-energy-density physics and inertial confinement fusion (ICF) implosions. This paper describes the architecture, systems, and subsystems of NIF. It describes how they partner with each other to meet these new.

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a high-power, beam laser facility being built at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. The laser beams that will converge on the target at the output of the NIF laser system originate from a low power fiber laser in the Master Oscillator Room (MOR).Cited by: The NIF PEPC Mechanical Test Stand is to be used in the building Building is being used to test components and processes for NIF.

The test stand is to be bolted to the floor. The test stand provides a platform from which the PEPC kinematic repeatability and vibrational characteristics of the PEPC LRU can be tested. Table 1. Requirements for the NIF laser system at the injection plane of the transport spatial filters.

The output performance specifications of the PAMs must satisfy these requirements plus provide additional margin in energy and power to account for transport loss from the PAM output to the injection plane of theCited by: 2.

Automated alignment for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is accomplished using a large-scale parallel control system that directs laser beams along the m optical path. The beams are then focused down to a 50 μ spot in the middle of the target chamber. The entire process is completed in less than 50 by: 9.

Although NIF was primarily designed as an indirect drive device, the energy in the laser is high enough to be used as a direct drive system as well, where the laser shines directly on the target.

Even at UV wavelengths the power delivered by NIF is estimated to be more than enough to cause ignition, resulting in fusion energy gains of about 40 times, [31] somewhat higher than the indirect drive system.

New Ways to Diagnose NIF Laser Performance At Photonics West, LLNL physicists outlined two techniques to diagnose NIF’s laser performance at full energy and power during ignition-relevant conditions.

Stephen Bodner, a former director of the laser fusion program at the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), has been a vocal critic of NIF since before its construction began. In a paper published in Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion, Bodner predicted that the highly intense NIF laser would create instabilities in the plasma.
