A double beam spectrophotometer is described, suitable for the measurements of very low attenuation coefficients in glass in the wavelength range 500-1000 nm. The instrument is shown to have aExpand
Compact optical technique for streak camera calibration
The National Ignition Facility is under construction at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy Stockpile Stewardship Program. Optical streak cameras are anExpand
Characterisation of an Optical Strain Gauge for Pantograph
An optical strain gauge is developed and characterised for an active pantograph for high-speed electrical trains applications. Indeed, the pantograph is subjected to a continuous impact forces whenExpand
Target Diagnostic Technology Research & Development for the LLNL ICF and HED Program
TLDR
This work has coupled large format CCD systems to the authors' optical and x-ray streak cameras leading to improvements in resolution and dynamic range and developed in collaboration with a commercial vendor a large format, compact CCD system. Expand
Optical sampling transient analyzer (OSTA) system
’ This work was performed under the auspices of the U. S . Atomic Energy Commission. of interest might range in amplitude from about 10 V to many kilovolts, and in time from a few nanoseconds to tensExpand
Optical Comb Generation for Streak Camera Calibration for Inertial Confinement Fusion Experiments
The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is coming on-line to support physics experimentation for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) programs in InertialExpand
Target diagnostic technology research and development for the LLNL ICF and HED program (invited)
TLDR
The National Ignition Facility is operational at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and efforts related to charge-coupled device (CCD) development, including developed in collaboration with a commercial vendor a large format, compact CCD system. Expand
Coherent light scattering measurements on single and cladded optical glass fibres
This paper considers the scattering, at normal incidence, of a laser beam by single and cladded optical glass fibres with a view to estimating their radii and refractive indices. For parallel andExpand
