Event Description

Dave Schlossberg, experimental physicist at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), is passionate about applying new techniques to understand complex physical phenomena. Schlossberg blends interests in diagnostics and understanding physical phenomena as part of the Implosions and Stagnation group. His current research involves using signatures from nuclear diagnostics to understand performance degradations caused by low-mode drive asymmetries in inertial confinement fusion. In addition, he is developing next-generation nuclear diagnostics as NIF moves into a new burning plasma regime.
