Application objectives of the Laser Fusion and Isotope Separation Programs at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory are reviewed, and projected laser system performance requirements for each application are summarized. Historical perspectives of the laser technology options considered to meet these requirements are described, and technical highlights in the ensuing development of Nd: glass (fusion), and copper vapor and tunable dye (isotope separation) laser systems are given.
