Abstract

In the pursuit of laser fusion, the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory (LLL) has undertaken a broad program of glass laser development and construction. This paper reviews the history of this effort,1 and indicates its future thrust. The CYCLOPS, JANUS, ARGUS, and SHIVA lasers are described, and possible larger lasers are discussed.
