The National Ignition Facility (NIF) Power Conditioning System (PCS) is a modular capacitive energy storage system that will be capable of storing nearly 400 MJ of electrical energy and delivering that energy to the nearly 8000 flashlamps in the NIF laser. The first sixteen modules of the power conditioning system have been built, tested and installed.(More)
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory operates the world's largest and most energetic laser. The facility supports studies of high energy density physics with the ultimate goal of achieving ignition and energy gain for the first time in a laboratory setting. The success of its mission depends heavily on key(More)
This thesis focuses on the performance of circuit-switched wavelength-routed optical network with unpredictable traffic pattern variations. This characteristic of optical networks is termed traffic forecast tolerance. First, the increasing volume and heterogeneous nature of data and voice traffic is discussed. The challenges in designing robust optical(More)
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is a 192-beam inertial confinement fusion machine that has been fully operational since May 2009, with more limited operation as far back as 2002. The Power Conditioning System (PCS) supports the NIF mission by driving 7680 flashlamps that pump laser slabs in the main and power amplifiers of the infrared section of the(More)
