The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the size of a sports stadium—three football fields could fit inside
NIF is the world’s most precise and reproducible laser system. It precisely guides, amplifies, reflects, and focuses 192 powerful laser beams into a target about the size of a pencil eraser in a few billionths of a second, delivering more than 2 million joules of ultraviolet energy and 500 trillion watts of peak power.
This video highlights the revisions that were made to the Omega Facility and its operational paradigm in order to continue to conduct experiments in the presence of COVID-19 workplace constraints.
The National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON) is a network of field research sites designed to collect long-term open access ecological data to better understand how U.S. ecosystems are changing.
