LMJ timing and fiducial system: Overview of the global architecture and performances

Abstract

The Laser MegaJoule (LMJ) timing system has to synchronize 176 laser beams better than 40 ps rms to compress symmetrically the millimeter-size target in order to ignite the deuterium and tritium filled capsule despite the fact that the quadruplet laser sources are separated within the building by several hundreds of meters. This kind of performance is also… (More)
