Lawrence Livermore National Lab, NIF Project – LEED
- Livermore, CA
The world’s largest and highest-energy laser was certified to operate by the U.S. Department of Energy on March 27, 2009. In 2010, NIF will focus the intense energy of 192 giant laser beams on a BB-sized target filled with hydrogen fuel & fusing, or igniting, the hydrogen atoms’ nuclei in the world’s first controlled thermonuclear reaction. Turman Commercial Painters was responsible for painting a 40’x40′ sign on the reactors exterior shell, just in time for its historical commissioning.
