The National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world’s largest and highest-energy laser system, is now fully operational at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL).? NIF is now being prepared to begin ignition experiments with the goal of demonstrating laser-driven inertial confinement fusion ignition and fusion energy gain in the laboratory for the first time.? This presentation will feature photos and videos showing the interior of NIF and descriptions of how NIF works and its important missions in national security, energy security and basic science.
