Donnelly group member Aaron Rosenthal (’15) working on the particle-delivery system for laser fusion experiments at the University of Texas at Austin. The setup slides into the target vacuum chamber and delivers micron-sized particles into the the UT Austin THOR laser beam. This laser produces 1-J pulses of 40 fs, which means that its peak power of 25 TW is more than 5 times the average power delivered across the US electrical grid!
