PLANAR LPI EXPERIMENT
This experiment will use the planar LPI platform which LLE have developed for Direct Drive and extend the incident laser intensity to Shock Ignition relevant levels (~1e16W/cm^2).
Currently it is being proposed that one side of the target will be used for Direct Drive (DD) studies, while the other will be for SI. One hemisphere of NIF will illuminate each side of the target.
Key diagnostics will be FABS, NBI, FFLEX. It is likely that OTS will be principally used for the DD side.
