Fusion Materials / Eighteenth Topical Meeting on the Technology of Fusion Energy (Part 1)

A high average power diode pumped solid state laser is used to pump large aperture Ti:sapphire enabling high average power chirped pulse amplification. After compression, over a petawatt of peak power will be used to generate fusion ions and neutrons for materials testing of first wall and final optics candidates.
