The annual NIF and Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) User Group meeting held this month brought together 186 researchers to review recent experimental results, preview upcoming Discovery Science campaigns, and learn about new capabilities and experimental platforms at both LLNL facilities.
The attendees included 56 students and represented approximately 42 institutions from six countries.
The theme of the opening remarks was one of gratitude to the user community for their inventive science and excitement for the future of high energy density (HED) science. The Department of Energy’s perspective was presented by Njema Frazier, representing the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Program Office, and Kramer Akli of the DOE Office of Science.
