Inertial confinement is a technique used for fusion research to stabilise a plasma and in-so-doing generate cleaner nuclear energy with the same processes that power our own sun. Major research centres include Megajoule in France (LMJ), NIF at Lawrence Livermore National Lab, and the Z-Machine at Sandia National Lab in the US.
Both of the following papers describe a solid-state system for delivery of high-energy electron beam pulses to drive a KrF laser for inertial fusion. For measurements of the system durability, an Agilent high-speed digitizer was used at 1 GSa/s to capture every shot, and then every 100th shot of the output pulses.
