    CBET Mitigation Campaign

    A demonstration of wavelength detuning as a mitigation strategy for cross-beam energy transfer (CBET) was conducted at the National Ignition Facility: pre-shot 2-D DRACO simulated (left) and backlit x-ray measured (right) radiographs of implosions without detuning (top) and with 4.6-Å (UV) detuning (bottom).

    Particle Temporal Diagnostic

    Hong Sio (MIT grad student) is shown holding the new 3-cm x-ray and charged-particle nose cone for
    the particle temporal diagnostic. It is a joint project between LLE and MIT, designed to simultaneously measure DD-n and D3He-p reaction histories in inertial confinement fusion implosions with high
    relative precision.

    Summer High School Research Program

    Eleven students from Rochester area high schools participated in the 2017 LLE Summer High School Research Program. Since its inception in 1989, 364 high school students have participated in this program. The program is led by Dr. Stephen Craxton, shown above with the students. Insets show some of the research activity engaged by the students and Mrs. Lois Houlihan of Pittsford-Mendon High School, the recipient of the 2017 William D. Ryan Inspirational Teacher Award.

    Single-Line-of-Sight Time-Resolved X-Ray Imager

    Scientists Terry Hilsabeck (left) and Kyle Engelhorn (right) from General Atomics prepare the single line-of-sight time-resolved x-ray imager (SLOS-TRXI) for installation at the Omega Laser Facility. SLOS-TRXI is a joint project with General Atomics, Kentech Instruments, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and Sandia National Laboratories. This multi-frame, ultrafast framing camera provides time-resolved x-ray imaging of the self-emission from a hot spot that is formed in an implosion of a cryogenic deuterium–tritium shell.

    Optics Suitcase

    The Optics Suitcase, conceived by Dr. Stephen D. Jacobs at LLE in 1999 with the support of the Rochester Section of the Optical Society of America, was designed to spark interest in science and engineering at the middle school level. To date, this outreach tool has been distributed to 40 U.S. states and 66 countries on six continents.

    Measuring Raman Scattering Tensor

    Scientist, Tanya Kosc, is shown conducting a measurement of the complete Raman scattering tensor of dihydrogen phosphate. These measurements are carried out using spherical samples manufactured at LLE to develop a predictive capability for transverse stimulated Raman scattering in various designs of distributed polarization rotators.

    Fast-Electron Transport

    Top left: Experimentally measured and simulated Cu Kα images from a cone-in-shell target National Laser Users' Facility (NLUF) experiment by L. C. Jarrott et al. Measured Cu Kα emission from fast electrons produced by the OMEGA EP beam interacting with the target imploded by OMEGA (top line of images). Simulated Cu Kα images (bottom line of images). Black lines indicate the approximate position of the cone. Photo in lower right shows some of the participants in the experiment.
