Abstract

Obtaining quantitative knowledge of the evolution of third harmonic generator damage from multiple shots of ultraviolet photons allows the National Ignition Facility (NIF) laser system to operate more efficiently. Damage sites on test crystals were generated and grown by various laser pulses shot offline in order to predict and model the behavior of the optic under conditions found within the NIF laser.

For this presentation, Brad DeShano received a College of the Sciences Best Poster Presentation Award for 2014.
