    How Edward Teller Learned to Love The Nuclear-Pumped X-Ray Laser the device as "nuclear explosive pumped X-ray lasers." The idea is to "columnate," or direct the X-ray energy released in a. Sandia National Labs has been investigating concepts for high power lasers pumped directly by fission energy. The direct pumping of laser media with fission fragments offers the potential advantages of scaling to high powers and very long run times in a compact, self powered system.

    Remarks made in the author's acceptance lecture for the Edward Teller Medal are presented and expanded. Topics covered include research on nuclear-pumped lasers, the first direct e-beam-pumped laser, direct energy conversion and advanced fuel fusion, plus recent work on inertial electrostatic confinement.

The book goes on to explore the efficient transport of energy from the ionizing radiation to the laser medium and then the operational characteristics of existing nuclear-pumped lasers. Models based on Mathematica, explanations and a tutorial all Cited by: 5. A nuclear pumped laser is a laser pumped with the energy of fission fragments.

The lasing medium is enclosed in a tube lined with uranium and subjected to high neutron flux in a nuclear reactor core. The fission fragments of the uranium create excited plasma with inverse population of energy levels, which then lases.

Other methods, e.g. the He-Ar laser, can use. The book goes on to explore the efficient transport of energy from the ionizing radiation to the laser medium and then the operational characteristics of existing nuclear-pumped lasers.

The book covers the history of Nuclear Pumped Lasers, or NPLs, with important results and stages of NPL development in The Russian.

Nuclear pumped lasers could therefore direct significant amounts of energy emitted in a nuclear explosion into a very narrowly collimated beam. This beam would not only be able to destroy or damage targets from very long ranges, but also preclude subsequent use due to its own self-damaging mechanism to the initial weapon.

[1]. We briefly describe the basic processes of formation and relaxation of nuclear-induced plasmas of gas mixtures, especially the processes of inverse population creation in nuclear-pumped lasers (NPL).

Except you still need to have the lasing medium able to receive the gamma ray/x-ray pulse from the detonation, which means your armor either needs to be transparent to x-rays/gamma rays (boron definitely isn't in the kind of thicknesses we use in our armors, and I'm pretty sure all of the other materials we use are just as x-ray/gamma ray opaque), or you can't .ABSTRACT.
