Latkowski, the FPA Board notes the contributions and leadership he has provided for the LIFE fusion-fission project, the NIF Final Safety Analysis, and to LLNL contributions to the non-laser portions of the national High Average Power Laser (HAPL) program.
He suggested there should be "four steps to fusion power: build an efficient high average power laser module, a target factory module and a fusion chamber; build a surged, heat capacity inertial fusion energy system; build a fusion engine; and build a fusion power plant.
The award cites Sethian for "his research in laser and target systems for inertial fusion energy and for his superlative technical leadership of the High Average Power Laser (HAPL) program.
The Committee recommendation includes $25,000,000 to continue development of high average power lasers and supporting science and technology within the Inertial Fusion Technology program line.
Within the inertial confinement fusion program, the budget proposes to eliminate, in its entirety, $48 M for High Average Power Lasers ($25 M), Krypton Fluuride laser research at the Naval Research Laboratory ($15 M), extended operations at the Z facility at Sandia National Laboratories ($6 M), and laser work at Ohio State University ($2 M).
Within that total, $25 M is provided for continuing development of high average power lasers, $2 M for the high density matter laser at Ohio State University, $15 M for the Naval Research Laboratory (Nike Laser) and $6 M to prepare Z-machine to support extended operations.
John Sethian (Naval Research Laboratory) described the status of laser fusion energy and the High Average Power Laser Program (HAPL).
