[2], v, [1], 85, [7], wraps, illus. (some color), references. The potential value of high energy petawatt lasers to achieving an increased understanding of nuclear weapons physics. Contributors included: J. Cornwall, S. Drell, R. Jeanloz, R. Lelevier, M. Rosenbluth, M. Rudeman, and J. Sullivan. In the Summer of 2002, the JASON undertook a study for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA)of the prospective scentific value of high energy petawatt (HEPW) lasers to the NNSA's Stockpile Stewardship Program (SSP). In particular the JASONs looked at the potential value of such lasers to achieving an increased understanding of nuclear weapons physics. In addition the JASONs paid attention to the impact of HEPW lasers on unclassified new science, including inertial-confinement fusion, astrophysics, and high-field physics. They also assessed a paln for petawatt laser facility development and research activities, including the technical and programmatic risks associated with it. This reports documents the response to the study charge, and the first chapter summarizes the findings. Bookseller Inventory # 68310
