High Power Laser Science and Engineering Cover Feature

Laser-system model for enhanced operational performance and flexibility on OMEGA EP by Mark J. Guardalben et al., was chosen as an Editors’ Pick and featured on the cover of High Power Laser Science and Engineering. The model’s ability to fine tune complex laser pulse shapes in real time has benefitted several user experiments on OMEGA EP, and will benefit future research to precisely tune the energy density of matter. Due to the success of the model on the OMEGA EP Laser System, a modified version is being adapted for use on LLE’s 60-beam OMEGA Laser System.
