Feb 26, 2019. News

Nobel Laureate Donna Strickland, shown with some of the women attendees, visited the NIF & JLF User Group Meeting banquet.

The annual NIF and Jupiter Laser Facility (JLF) User Group meeting brought together more than 180 researchers to learn about the capabilities, recent experiments, and new experimental platforms of both LLNL facilities. The attendees included 61 students and represented 31 institutions across six countries.

In his welcome, NIF&PS Principal Associate Director Jeff Wisoff described a “great year on NIF” since the last user group meeting. “We had a record number of Discovery Science publications,” he said. “We’ve made critical contributions to the stockpile stewardship program, we achieved our highest energy level ever of 2.15 megajoules (on NIF), and we are expanding our experimental capabilities.”
