NIF beams
This schematic of the laser setup at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) shows how the 192-beam arrangement is designed to heat up a gold can, initiating a fusion reaction in the sphere of deuterium and tritium held inside. The laser-based technology may one day provide a significant amount of clean energy. Credit: NIF/LLNL.
