OMEGA laser reveals findings on radiation-plasma interactions
A study recently published in Nature Communications brings a new perspective on how radiation travels through dense plasmas, potentially leading to a better understanding of the evolution of stars and the development of controlled nuclear fusion reactions. researchers led by investigators at the University of Rochester Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) achieved their findings by conducting experiments with LLE’s OMEGA laser system. This extensive system, which is 19 meters tall and 70 meters long, consists of 60 laser beams that can focus as much as 30,000 joules of energy onto a target for the study of nuclear and fluid dynamic events.

NURETH is the premier gathering for experts in nuclear reactor thermal hydraulics and related topical areas. This meeting is held every two years. The Washington DC ANS Section is pleased to host NURETH-20 in Washington, DC, USA. Washington, DC is more than the capital of the USA– it is the center of both support and regulation of the nuclear industry. Washington DC is not only a center of government but also a tremendous visitor center with cultural attractions for all.
