Intended Use: The instrument is intended to be used to provide amplification of a light beam to a power above 10 to the 12th W for studies including the following: 1. Measuring fragments such as ions and photons of materials irradiated directly with an intense ultraviolet beam 2. Determining the energy flow and the nature of secondary radiation produced 3. Instrumental control of the focus, thereby maximizing the intensity at which such experiments can be conducted 4. Studying absorption and excitation. The instrument will also be used for instruction of graduate students. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: December 9, 2005 Gerald A.
