The National Ignition Facility, the world s largest laser system housed in a ten-story building at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is the subject of this guide. NIF's 192 lasers can deliver 60 times more energy than any previous laser system. NIF will focus laser energy on a tiny target, creating conditions similar to those that exist only in the cores of stars and hydrogen bombs.
