A Nd-glass laser facility is described which is designed for studies of the laser-plasma interaction and for the development of special diagnostic instrumentation relevant to the problems of laserdriven fusion. The laser produces a 1-J, 200-psec pulse of 1.06-¿m radiation which is focused into a 50--100-¿m target spot to generate the plasma under study. An… CONTINUE READING
