Get ready to explore the world-renowned National Ignition Facility, which houses the most powerful laser in the world and conducts cutting-edge research in fusion energy, astrophysics, and more. You’ll have the opportunity to see the facility’s state-of-the-art equipment and learn about the groundbreaking work being done by our scientists and engineers. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to experience the future of science!
Big Science

The National Ignition Facility (NIF) is the size of a sports stadium – three football fields could fit inside. NIF’s unique energy and power enable cutting-edge research to help keep America safe and secure, explore new frontiers of sciencem abd kay the groundwork for a clean, sustainable source of enegery.

Extreme Precision

NIF is the world’s most precise and reporducible 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 secon, delivering more than 2 million joules of ultraviolet energy and 500 tillion watts of peak power.

Nuclear Fusion
NIF generates temperatures in the target of more than 180 million degrees Fahrenheit and pressures of more than 100 billion Earth atmospheres.  Those extreme conditions cause hydeogen atoms in the target to fuse and release energery in a controlled thermonuclear reaction for fusion.
