IAP Seminars

This talk will provide an overview of Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) and High-Energy-Density (HED) science, highlighting MIT’s HED Division work at the three major US ICF facilities: NIF, Omega and Z.  MIT’s work at these facilities is based on their design and implementation of novel diagnostics, platforms, and analyses, developed in the PSFC accelerator facility.
